Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the 4 ingredients for the Wasabi Mayonnaise and set aside.
  3. Combine crabmeat and breadcrumbs in a medium bowl.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk egg, chives, 2 tbsp mayonnaise, mustard, Old Bay seasoning, and lemon zest until blended; add to crab mixture and stir.
  5. Scoop mounds of crab mixture (about 1 1/2 tbsp) into small round cakes, about 1 1/2 inches wide.
