Ingredients

1/2 cup (110 grams) Mayonnaise

1 Tbsp (15 grams) Dijon Mustard

1 Tbsp (15 grams) Worcestershire Sauce

Dash to 1/2 tsp Hot Sauce

Zest of 1 Lemon

1 tsp (5 grams) Sea Salt

Black Pepper, to taste

1 Large Egg

Crab Meat (quantity as desired)

2 tbsp Chopped Chives

3/4 cup (45 grams) Panko Bread Crumbs or Crushed Saltine Crackers

Directions

Step 1 - Create the Flavor Base:

In a bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, lemon zest, sea salt, and black pepper until combined.

Step 2 - Add the Egg:

Crack a large egg into the mix and whisk it in thoroughly.

Step 3 - Fold in the Crab and Chives:

Gently fold in your crab meat and 2 tablespoons of chopped chives, ensuring not to break the crab meat too much.

Step 4 - Incorporate the Breadcrumbs:

Finally, fold in 3/4 cup of panko bread crumbs or crushed saltine crackers. This will help bind your crab cakes and give them a nice texture.

Step 5 - Fry to Perfection:

Heat 1/4 cup of oil (canola or peanut) in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Form the crab mixture into cakes and fry them for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden and crispy.
