Mostly A's: Maryland Crab Cake

You love the classics, and you're not overly worried about changing something if you like it. You know what you like, and you like it! The servers at places like Phillips or Higgins know your order by heart because you're just so dependable! So if you're after a crab recipe, you need to stick to the basics. Try your hand at making a Baltimore crab cake. New fad dishes will come and go, but this one's not going anywhere.

 

Mostly B's: Crab Dip

You're a social butterfly who's not going to sit and eat your crabs alone. You need a dish that you can share with your buds while you discuss the latest Ravens game or the concert schedule at Merriweather Post Pavilion. Crab dip is perfect for sharing, and goes great with everything from fries to pretzels to nachos. Try these recipes and share them with all your friends!

 

Mostly C's: Avocado and Crab Sushi

You're unique, and for you, the classics are a little stale. You can be found at the Charles Theater catching a foreign movie or at the BMA's contemporary art gallery. You'd rather try something new, and you're more at home at a hole-in-the-wall diner or restaurant than in a crab house. Luckily, sushi is a perfect medium for using crab meat, and you'll satisfy that craving for something different with a recipe for avocado and crab sushi. 

 

Mostly D's: Cream of Crab Soup

You value comfort above all else, and you don't need to travel far or party hard to have a good time. There's lots of great stuff on TV, your friends are texting back, and life is good. You should try a recipe that's as cozy and easy-going as you are, like a big bowl of cream of crab soup. Spend your next rainy evening making this, grab the crackers and the Old Bay, and settle in for a relaxing night.
