how about these:
200g crab meat
2 spring onions
2 bird's eye chillies deseedde and finely chopped
3 lime leaves or 1 short stalk of lemongrass chopped
1 tsp thai fish sauce
1 tbsp half fat mayo
1 handful of fresh coriander
dash of tabasco
30 -40g breadcrumbs
1 tbsp oil
10g plain white flour
1 lime to serve

Method
1. mix the first 8 ingredients together then add enough breadcrumbs to hold the mixture together.

2.heat 1/2 the oil in a frying pan. dredge the patties with flour and fry the cakes on one side for 3 minutes.

3. Add the rest of the oil turn the cakes over and fry for another 2 to 3 minutes.

these are good served with thai dipping sauce.

found another one:

Serves 4
1 lb mealy potatoes, diced
6 oz white crabmeat, drained if canned
4 scallions, chopped
1 teaspoon light soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon chopped lemongrass
1 teaspoon lime juice
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
salt and pepper


SAUCE
4 tablespoons finely chopped cucumber
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon garlic wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon light soy sauce
1 fresh red chile, chopped


TO GARNISH
1 fresh red chile, sliced
cucumber slices


1. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 10 minutes, until cooked through. Drain well and mash.

2. Mix the crabmeat into the potato with the scallions, soy sauce, sesame oil, lemongrass, lime juice, and flour. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Divide the crab and potato mixture into 8 equal portions and shape them into small rounds, using floured hands.

4. Heat the oil in a preheated wok or large, heavy-based skillet and cook the cakes, in batches of 4 at a time, for 5-7 minutes, turning once. Remove from the pan with a spatula. Drain on paper towels and keep warm.

5. Meanwhile, make the dipping sauce. In a small serving bowl, mix together the cucumber, honey, vinegar, soy sauce, and the chile.

6. Garnish the cakes with the red chile and cucumber slices and serve with the dipping sauce.

Cook's Tip: When using lemongrass, remove the tough outer leaves and the root and finely chop.
