Maryland Crab Imperial With Buttery Golden Bread Crumbs

Crab imperial is everything Maryland crab cakes aren’t, in the best possible way. It’s loaded with seasonings, like Old Bay, lemon, and mustard; has a delightfully creamy consistency; and sports a crispy, crunchy topping of golden buttered bread crumbs. It won’t hold its shape as a crab cake, but it doesn’t need to—and it’s much easier to make.
