Absolutely delicious! I made these crab cakes today for lunch. I only used 1 pound of lump crab, the good stuff is expensive! It made enough for 10 medium sized patties. (3 for me, 3 for my boyfriend for a full entree with steamed broccolini and some toasted garlic bread, 1 for a snack, and 3 more for lunch the next day for me!) So for my 1 pound of crab, I used one full egg, 1/4 cup crushed saltines, 1/4 cup Japanese Kewpie mayo, about a half teaspoon of lemon zest, a bit of the chopped fresh basil, about a small handful or so of Panko bread crumbs, a little bit of chopped scallions, and about a half teaspoon or so of the Old Bay seasoning. Formed them and put in the fridge. Definitely let them get cold before frying! Then fried a couple minutes on each side with some veggie oil on medium heat. When done, let dry on same paper towels to absorb oil. AWESOME. For my sauce I stuck to the sort of Japanese inspired idea, I took some kewpie Japanese mayo, added some some zest and a small bit of lime juice, and a dollop of sriracha sauce. It came out tangy and zesty and spicy and creamy! My boyfriend said it was too lime-y so next time I would make his with no lime (pretty much just sushi style spicy mayo) and mine with the lime because I liked it. I might add more old bay seasoning and a little less lemon zest next time to the cakes. Overall though, awesome.
