Instead of using the traditional sauces with crab cakes, I elected to make an Old Bay Aioli.

Old Bay is a spice blend that is used in all sorts of seafood recipes. It’s also tasty on top of corn on the cob with melted butter. It has a salty and spicy flavor that is the perfect compliment to the mild crabmeat.

The old bay is combined with mayonnaise and sour cream to bring the creamy sauce together.

If you are looking for cocktail and tartar sauce I’ve got you covered with recipes for both below.
