Joe’s Crab Shack Crab Cakes


Some of my most-loved 30-minute meals are a “copycat recipes” of some of my favorites from famous eateries. These home-cooked Joe’s Crab Shack Crab Cakes are a good replica of the ones you can find at this restaurant. You can cook them at home, but it will feel like you’re on the beach

I like the way that duplicate recipes allow you to make the restaurant’s favorite at home. A lot of restaurant dishes are simple to recreate so that you can enjoy them at any time you wish.

Joe’s Crab Shack Crab Cakes at Home is simple.

My birthplace was in Maine which is why one of my favorite family summer time things was to travel out to the ocean of Maine to spend a relaxing weekend in the sunshine. The fun part was dining out at the local seafood establishments that were plentiful throughout the coast of Maine. Anything that was made from lobster or crab was a favorite of mine.
