The Ravens are off to a solid start this season, so this week we’re headed up to Baltimore for some solid game day feasting. Everyone’s a fan of Maryland crab cakes, but like Weddle said “This ain’t the same Ravens”, so we’re putting our own Office Jockeys twist on the Maryland classic. That’s right, we’re making crab cake tacos, aka Flaccos Tacos.
Crab cakes as a taco? Sounds weird right? But don’t doubt it because this recipe will blindside your taste buds so hard it might get recruited by Sandra Bullick to play for the Ravens next season. It’s like the famous Raven once said:
Better than you’ve had before
Better than you buy at any store
Try it once and you’ll know for sure
Another recipe you’ll need “Nevermore”
[Poe style poem in a food post? They said it couldn’t be done yet here I am. Burn the white suit because I’m killin’ it right now]
