Spicy Mustard Crab Cakes with Lemon-Garlic Aioli

This latest addition to our crab cake recipe collection is spiced up with Colman's mustard and served with a Lemon Garlic Aioli.    We like this recipe because it uses a minimal amount of filler (three tablespoons crushed saltines) and only 1/4 cup of mayonnaise.
