Are you making this? 
Red Chili Mayonnaise:
0.5 cup Mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Chili-Garlic Sauce
0.75 teaspoon Lemon Juice
Crab Cakes:
0.25 cup Celery; Minced
0.25 cup Green Onion; Minced
0.25 cup Mayonnaise
1 large Egg
1 tablespoon Dry Mustard
0.25 teaspoon Salt
1 pinch Cayenne Pepper
1 pound Fresh Crabmeat
2.75 cups panko; (Japanese breadcrumbs)
2 tablespoon Butter
2 tablespoon olive oil

Original recipe makes 4



Red chili mayonnaise: Mix mayonnaise, chili-garlic sauce and lemon juice.

Mix first 7 ingredients in medium bowl. Mix in crab. Mix in enough breadcrumbs (about 2 cups) to form mixture that barely holds together. Spread remaining breadcrumbs on baking sheet.

Shape crab mixture into eight 3/4-inch-thick patties. Coat crab cakes with remaining breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour. (Can be prepared 4 hours ahead; keep refrigerated.)

Melt 1 tablespoon butter with 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 4 crab cakes; reduce heat to medium and cook until brown, about 4 minutes per side. Wipe skillet clean. Repeat with remaining butter, oil and crab cakes. Transfer crab cakes to plates. Serve crab cakes immediately with red chili mayonnaise


I substituted Panko bread crumbs
