How to make it

In a medium sized bowl, stir together the egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, Old Bay seasoning, garlic powder, kosher salt and diced celery.

Then add the lump crab meat, parsley, and panko bread crumbs. Very gently fold all the ingredients together, being careful not to over mix the ingredients. 

Next, using your hands, divide the crab mixture into 2 large (or 4 smaller) even-sized patties.

Heat a saute pan over medium heat and add the unsalted butter and olive oil. Let the butter and oil melt together and heat for 1-2 minutes. Add the crab cakes and cook for 3-4 minutes on one side (until light golden brown). Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
