Spicy Crab Cakes with Lemon Aioli Sauce
Heat a medium size pan over medium heat. Add the butter. Once melted add the shallot, 1 clove of garlic and red pepper. Lightly saute until tender, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon zest, crab boil seasoning, fresh parsley, 1/2 cup of the panko and egg. Mix in cooked vegetables, hot sauce, and salt and pepper, to taste. Add crabmeat and stir well.
Form crab cakes using about 2 tablespoons of crab mixture for each cake.. Flatten until they're about 3/4 inches high. Dip the cakes into the remaining panko.
Add oil to a large skillet over high heat. Add crab cakes and saute, flipping once, until golden brown and crisp, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Serve with Lemon Aioli.
In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
