  • 1/2 cup Panko break crumbs, parmesan and herb flavored
  • 1/2 red pepper, roasted and diced
  • 4 green onions, diced
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Parsley Flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 pound lump crab meat
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Chipotle Mayo:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 chipotles in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
  • 1/2 of a lime, squeezed


Prepare the chipotle mayonnaise

  • Blend together the mayo, chipotles, adobo sauce and lime juice until puréed and well blended. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Make the crabcakes

  • Mix together all the ingredients, using your hands if necessary. Shape into four large patties. Be sure to refrigerate the crabcakes for about 30 minutes before cooking. It helps to keep them together while cooking. Using a cast-iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat and add the crabcakes to the pan. Fry them flipping once until golden brown on each side, for a total of about 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Transfer the crabcakes to your choice of sandwich rolls. Sandwich a crispy crab cake between the bun halves and top with the chipotle mayo and the toppings of your choice.
