½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup chopped fresh chives
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning or other seafood seasoning blend
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
28 oz. lump crabmeat, picked over
5 cups fresh breadcrumbs, made from crustless French bread, divided
¼ tsp. black pepper
3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
3 Tbs. butter
lemon wedges


Combine mayo, chives, parsley, lemon juice, Old Bay, cayenne pepper and black pepper. Add crab and two cups of breadcrumbs and stir until fully mixed.

Add the remaining breadcrumbs to a shallow bowl. Using your fingers, create small patties with about ¼ cup of crab mixture. Coat each patty with the breadcrumbs, pressing the breadcrumbs into the patty to make them stick.

Heat half of the oil and butter in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. In two batches, cook the crab cakes until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side. Before cooking the second batch, remove any browned bits from the pan and melt the rest of the butter and oil. Arrange on a platter. Serve with lemon wedges and Dill-Caper Tartar Sauce
