In a medium bowl, combine egg, mayonnaise, Tabasco, lime juice, salt, cayenne and cilantro.
Blend in bread crumbs. Gently blend in crabmeat, being careful not to break the meat apart.
Shape into 6 patties or 8 cakes. Coat lightly with 1 cup bread crumbs.
Heat oil and butter in a skillet to 375° F. Add the crab cakes to the skillet and cook until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
Garnish with lime wedges.
