Flashback Friday - Crab cakes

May 26 8:00am minxeats - recipes, recaps, and restaurant reviews
This post originally appeared on on July 14, 2014.Sometimes dinner time is like an episode of Chopped. I look in the fridge and find a celery root, and on the counter are a pint of grape tomatoes and two ripe avocados. There's meat from 7 nicely-sized crabs as well, a leftover bonus after the crab feast we had the day before. Now how do I incorporate these things into something delicious?I suppose it wasn't all that difficult. Not like I also had to use Chopped-style speed bumps like pop rocks or canned peaches (although we do have those in the house). I briefly thought I could stuff the avocado with crab salad, but I really felt like crab cakes. (:::feeling self::: yup - definitely crab cakes.) And don't get me wrong, I love Old Bay, but I think I might like Phillip's seafood seasoning even more. It's less, um, distinctive than Old Bay, and therefore allows the sweet flavor of crab to shine through while still tasting like seafood seasoning.The celery root became celeri remoulade. Here's the recipe I usually use, adapted from Joel Robuchon. Because classic French is how I roll. (So untrue.) Unfortunately, I didn't have cornichons on hand, but since I was using the remoulade as a substitute for cole slaw to go with crab cakes, I squirted in a little Dijon. Hey, it worked great. Didn't even miss the wee sour pickles. The avocado was mashed with a bit of lemon juice and salt, and the tomatoes were quartered and lightly pickled in a bit of rice wine vinegar, green Tabasco, and pinches of sugar and salt.The combination was nice. The avocado was rich, the tomatoes bright, the crab cakes luscious, and the celeri remoulade added a lot of texture. Would have made a nice sandwich, too.Crab Cakes, a la Phillips, by way of theminx1 teaspoon Phillips Seafood Seasoning1 egg1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce1/8 teaspoon dry mustard1 tablespoon mayonnaise½ teaspoon lemon juice1 ½ teaspoon prepared mustard12 ounces blue crab meat, picked over for shellsPanko breadcrumbsOilCombine all ingredients except crab and panko in a large bowl.

CRABCAKE: Steve Kimock, Jerry Garcia's favorite unknown guitar player coming to Rams Head On Stage June 1 (May 2017)

May 25 8:55pm The Maryland Crabs Podcast
This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it's a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!  Whether with each of the living members of the Grateful Dead, his band Voodoo Dead, with Parliament/Funkadelic co-founder Bernie Worrell or his solo acoustic project, Steve Kimock has proven himself a versatile master of improvisation for over four decades, and in the process inspiring music fans with his transcendent guitar speak voiced through electric, acoustic, lap and pedal steel guitars. While one can say that his genre is rock, no one niche has ever confined him. In this Crabcake, we talk about his beginnings, playing with his incredibly talented son, and his new album due out in the fall.  Oh and we touch on the time when Jerry Garcia said he was his favorite unknown (at the time) guitar player! Be sure to listen to Steve's latest single, Sagan, at the end of this Crabcake! Tickets are still available for Steve's 8pm show on June 1, 2017 at Rams Head On Stage.

25 Years of Institutional Knowledge; A Conversation with St. John's President, Chris Nelson (E-40)

May 25 12:01pm The Maryland Crabs Podcast
He's leaving!  After more than a quarter-century at the helm of St. John's College, Christoper Nelson is retiring! With that kind of tenure, we thought it woudl be a great time to invade his office and talk. We covered all sorts of ground. From what makes St. John's unique, to how they insulate themselves from the political turmoil found on many campuses, to the changes he has seen in Annapolis and St. John's over his tenure. We talked about the struggles the college faced during the recession, and the struggles all colleges are facing in today's world and what will be needed to thrive going forward. Chris Nelson has left a mark on the institution and the town and our conversation brings it out. Did you know the Nelson is the longest serving president of ANY college or university in the state?  Now you do. Chris leaves his post (and cushy office) at the end of June and will take a brief sabbatical while he organizes his new home, and then like Schwarzenegger in The Terminator---he'll be back.  Nelson will return as a Tutor (that's Johnnyese for Professor). St. John's College Hey, before you zone out---do us a favor. Head over to Apple Podcasts (formerly iTunes), Google Play or wherever you listen to us and leave us a rating and if you have time a comment. Not only does it elevate (or shatter) our egos, it really helps with getting the word out about this podcast. Thanks!   Looking ahead--Travis Pastrana, Congressman John Sarbanes,  a chat with the sponsor of the USS Sioux City--one of the Navy's newest battleships, the final (we think) Mayoral Candidate for Annapolis--Nevin Young, a discussion on tourism and its importance along with an exclusive talk with Annapolis' newest police chief--Chief Scott Baker! Plus, we have some kids that have decided to spill the beans on their experience at Anne Arundel County Public Schools! Did you check out our Crabcake with John Tesh or the one with Nick Morrison?
