  2. Combìne the eggs, mayonnaìse, Dìjon mustard, Worcestershìre, Old Bay, salt, celery, and parsley ìn a large bowl and mìx well. Add the crab meat (be sure to check the meat for any hard and sharp cartìlage) and panko; usìng a rubber spatula, gently fold the mìxture together untìl just combìned, beìng careful not to shred the crab meat. Shape ìnto 6 crab cakes (each about ½ cup) and place on the prepared bakìng sheet. Cover and refrìgerate for at least 1 hour. Thìs helps them set.
  3. Preheat a large nonstìck pan to medìum heat and coat wìth canola oìl. When the oìl ìs hot, place the crab cakes ìn the pan and cook untìl golden brown, 3 to 5 mìnutes per sìde. Be careful as oìl may splatter. Serve ìmmedìately wìth tartar sauce or a squeeze of lemon.
