To make the bread crumbs: In a mixing bowl, stir the garlic,
shallots and parsley into the bread crumbs, being careful not to
leave any clumps of garlic or shallots. Add salt and pepper. Set
To make the mustard mayonnaise: In a mixing bowl, combine mustard,
mayonnaise, Worcestershire and horseradish. Refrigerate.
In a stainless steel bowl, toss the crabmeat with the prepared
crumbs. In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 T. mustard mayonnaise
with the parsley, mustard, eggs, Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce.
Pour over crabmeat mixture and mix gently to combine. Divide into 6
portions. Form into balls. Flatten slightly to 1-inch thickness - do
not make perfectly flat.
Place crab cakes on a buttered, nonstick cookie sheet. Place in a

metal spatula and cook another 4 minutes. Divide among 6 plates, and
garnish each serving with 1 T. mustard mayonnaise and a lemon wedge.
