"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

2 Ib. fresh lump crab meat
1/2 cup minced green onion
1/2 cup minced red bell pepper
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1-1/2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
1/2 tsp. pepper
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. butter
Lemon wedges (optional)

Creamy Caper-Dill Sauce
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. drained capers
2 tsp. chopped fresh dill
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Rinse, drain, and flake crabmeat, being careful to NOT break up lumps, and remove any bits of shell. Set crabmeat aside. Saute green onion and bell pepper in hot oil in a large nonstick skillet 8 minutes or until tender. Stir together green onion mixture, bread crumbs, egg, and next five ingredients. Gently fold in crabmeat. Shape mixture into 14 (2 1/2 inch) cakes. Place on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Cover and chill at least one hour or up to 8 hours. Melt butter in a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Add crab cakes and cook in 2 batches 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with lemon wedge and creamy caper-dill sauce.

Stir all ingredients together well. Cover and chill for up to one hour before meal time.
