• 2 scallions, thinly sliced
• 1 large egg, lightly beaten
• 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
• 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice, wedges for garnish
• 1 ½ tsp. Old Bay Seasoning

Whisk first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add crab; fold to blend. Stir in ¾ cup panko, chives, salt and pepper. Divide into 6 equal portions. Form each into 1-inch thick patties. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.
