In medium bowl, place egg, mayonnaise, salt, mustard, Tabasco and pepper and whisk until smooth. Add crab meat, chives and crumbs, and toss lightly with a fork, being careful not to break up meat.
Shape into 6 patties. Wrap each patty in plastic paper and chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Fry in hot oil until golden brown on one side, about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and repeat on other side. Drain on paper towels. Serve with lemon wedges.
