I really like this recipe for Maryland Crab Cakes

INGREDIENTS:

1 large egg
2½ tablespoons mayonnaise (I… like Hellman’s Real)
1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard (I like Maille brand)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup finely diced celery (you’ll need one stalk)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
1 pound lump crab meat*
½ cup panko (I like the Whole Foods 365 brand for this recipe)
Canola oil

DIRECTIONS:

1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2. Combine the egg, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, Old Bay, salt,
celery, and parsley in a large bowl and mix well. Add the crab meat (be sure to
check the meat for any hard and sharp cartilage) and panko; gently fold mixture
together until just combined, being careful not to shred the crab meat. Shape
into 6 crab cakes (about ½ cup each) and place on prepared baking sheet. Cover
and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
3. Preheat a large nonstick pan to medium heat and coat with canola oil. When
oil is hot, place crab cakes in pan and cook until golden brown, about 3-5
minutes per side. Be careful as oil may splatter. Serve immediately with tartar
sauce or a squeeze of lemon.

serve.
