Total: 48 Minutes

Ingredients

6 ounces fresh lump crabmeat, drained
2 (3-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 1/4 cups Japanese breadcrumbs (panko)
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Generously grease 2 (12-cup) miniature muffin pans. Pick crabmeat, removing any bits of shell.

2. Stir cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Add 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese and next 6 ingredients; stir until smooth. Fold in crabmeat and parsley.

3. Combine remaining 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, and melted butter in a medium bowl; toss with a fork until breadcrumbs are moistened. Spoon 1 Tbsp. breadcrumb mixture into each muffin cup; press into bottom and up sides to form crust. Spoon 1 Tbsp. crab mixture into each crust.

4. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Run a knife around edges of crab cakes to loosen; gently lift cakes from pan. Serve warm or at room temperature topped with Chive Aïoli.
