Recipe Orange Aioli
Directions
  1. In a large bowl combine egg, green onions, sweet pepper, mayonnaise, Worcestershire-style marinade, mustard, Old Bay seasoning, and lemon-pepper seasoning. Add crabmeat; mix well. Shape mixture into twelve 2-inch-diameter patties. Dip both sides of patties into panko, pressing gently to coat.

  3. Transfer crab cakes to a baking sheet. Keep warm in a 300 degrees F oven while cooking the remaining crab cakes in the remaining butter and oil. Serve warm. If desired, arrange crab cakes on a bed of spinach. Serve with Orange Aioli.
From the Test Kitchen

These are very meaty cakes, which makes them special but also a bit fragile. Handle them gently, moving them as little as possible in the pan. When they begin to cook, they will hold together a bit better. They're worth the effort.
