Check the crab meat for pieces of shell and gently squeeze out any excess
moisture. Do not break up the larger pieces of meat, as these enhance the
texture of the crab cakes. In a large bowl, combine all the crab cake
ingredients, mixing well but lightly. Form into cakes about 2 inches
diameter and 1/2 inch high.

To prepare the Sherry-Cayenne Mayo, mix 1 cup mayonnaise, cayenne, and
vinegar together well. Keep refrigerated until needed.

Heat the oil to 375 degrees.

Deep-fry the crab cakes for about 3 minute, or until golden brown and
crispy on the outside. The crab cake can also be pan-fried, if you prefer.

Serve 3 crab cakes per person, and top each with 1 1/2 to 2 tsp of
Sherry-Cayenne Mayonnaise. Garnish each serving with a lemon wedge.
