    * Huy Fong, Shark or my YAAAAHHHHOOOOAAAAHHHH Hot Sauce

    In a medium bowl, combine the scallions, cilantro, ginger,
    lime zest, lime juice, and mayonnaise. Stir in the lump
    crab meat and the panko to combine. Cover with plastic
    wrap and chill for 1 to 2 hours.

    Using your clean hands, form the crab mixture into 1-inch
    diameter round balls.

    Set out 3 bowls, one for flour, one for the beaten egg,
    and one for panko bread crumbs. Roll each crab ball in
    first the flour, then the beaten egg, and finally the
    panko. Set aside on a plate.

    Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottomed sauté pan on
    medium high heat. Swirl in the butter. After the butter
    has foamed up and melted, place the panko coated crab
    balls into the pan and press down gently with a metal
    spatula. Do not crowd the pan, you may need to work in
    batches. Cook a minute or two, until golden brown on one
    side, then gently turn the crab cakes over and cook until
    golden brown on the other side.

    Remove to a paper towel lined plate or to a sheet pan in a
    low oven to keep warm. Sprinkle with lime juice to serve,
    and serve with a slice of lime.

    Yield: Makes 16 appetizer sized crab cakes.

    Dave's yield: 4 nice main course crab cakes
