2. 5 scallions, thinly sliced
3. 3 jalapeños, seeded and minced
4. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
5. 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
6. 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
7. 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
8. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
9. 1/2 cup mayonnaise
10. 1 pound lump crabmeat, picked over

4. 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
5. 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1. MAKE THE CRAB CAKES In a mini food processor, puree the fish. Transfer to a large bowl and add the scallions, jalapeños, lemon juice, parsley, cayenne, salt, pepper and mayonnaise and mix thoroughly. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the crabmeat. Form the mixture into 8 cakes. Coat the cakes with the panko and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2. MEANWHILE, MAKE THE MAYONNAISE In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chipotle, lemon juice, Old Bay and mustard and season with salt and black pepper. Cover and refrigerate.
3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1/4 inch of olive oil until shimmering. Add the crab cakes and cook over moderate heat until browned and heated through, about 3 minutes per side. Serve the crab cakes with the chipotle mayonnaise.
Make Ahead The chipotle mayonnaise can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
