Maryland's Eastern shore is famous for its crab cakes. Mostly crab... very little cake. One of the favorite condiments with those crab cakes is Old Bay seasoning. It's used in the boil, sprinkled on top of the crabs, and added to crab cake mixes. It's even shaken liberally on french fries and is a feature flavor of potato chips from a couple local manufacturers. It's good stuff.
A simple, tasty sauce for crab cakes is a mixture of mayonnaise, old bay and lemon juice. You can also add some minced garlic or shallot, but the old bay already has some garlic and onion powder in it, so that's not necessary.
As far as a "recipe" goes, I generally just go by "feel" and taste. If you forced me to give you amounts, I'd say 1/2 c mayo, 2 Tbs lemon juice and 2 Tbs of old bay.
