Potato Dishes

Any form of potato is a perfect side dish to match with crab cakes. If you choose to make, a baked potato serve it with your favorite toppings like sour cream, bacon bits or shredded cheese. Another potato dish that has become an American staple of a side dish is french fries. Like a baked potato add your favorite condiment with it whether its ketchup, honey mustard or even ranch. Though to add an even more Maryland touch add some Old Bay seasoning to spice up not only the fries but the crab cake as well. Finally, another form of potato that is a perfect couple with crab cakes is potato salad. This dish can be easily prepared and can be customized any way you want to.  


Pairing crab cakes with fresh vegetables are perfect, especially with the nice weather right now. You can cook any particular vegetable but some that pair well with crab cakes are green beans, carrots, and broccoli. All you need to do to prepare them is to steam and season them to your preference. Also, another reason this is the perfect side dish is that this is the most healthy dish you can have compared to other side dishes.  


Although not everyone’s favorite, coleslaw is a perfect side dish if you’re having a casual dinner with family and friends. Not to mention it’s easy to make, all you need is shredded cabbage and some mayonnaise. Season the dish with pepper to taste so it can be enjoyed with our famous crab cakes.
