These are great using finely crushed Ritz Crackers in place of the bread crumbs. When zesting the lemon, start with 1/2 and if you like it more lemony use the zest of the other half of the lemon. Same when making the sauce. Taste using the juice of 1/2 lemon and see how you like it. If you want more lemon, then add the rest of the juice. It is really about personal preference with this recipe. If you use canned crab, make sure you squeeze it to get all the juice out before mixing with the other ingredients. Lump crab is great for making these.
