2 tablespoons milk
1 cup cooked white quinoa
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon fresh chopped
1 tablespoon baking powder

1 egg, beaten
1 pound fresh lump crab meat

Place cracker crumbs in bowl and moisten with milk.
Add quinoa, Worcestershire sauce, parsley flakes, baking powder, Old Bay Seasoning, Salt, egg, and crab meat. Gently mix so as to keep as much of the lump crab meat together as possible.
