2 pounds jumbo lump blue crabmeat
1/2 cup mayonnaise or homemade aioli
4 teaspoons seafood seasoning (recommended: Old Bay)
6 scallions, finely chopped, about 3/4 of the green part
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
2 large eggs
Salt and pepper
3 to 6 tablespoons fine bread crumbs (use just enough to help the cakes start to bind)
Canola-olive oil blend
Cocktail Sauce, recipe follows, for serving
Flavored aioli, for serving, optional
1 quart ketchup
2 tablespoons horseradish
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Variation: I prefer to use a grill with really good hardwood briquette or mesquite. You'll need a special rack accessory that can be found in any store that sells grills. I use a rack with little holes so the crab won't fall through into the fire. Make sure that the rack is well seasoned or the crab will stick to the grill. If you're good with a grill then go for it.
