Carefully clean the crab meat of any shells or cartilage. In a large bowl, gently mix crab meat, scallions or green onions, herbs, Old Bay seasoning, bread crumbs, and mayonnaise. Season with salt and white pepper. Carefully fold in egg with a rubber spatula until mixture just clings together.
Divide crab mixture into four portions and shape each into a flat, round cake about 3 inches across and 1-1/2 inches high. Place onto a baking sheet lined either parchment or wax paper; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerator at least 3 hours or overnight (the cold will firm up the cakes so that they will not break up when fried.)
Place bread or cracker crumbs into a shallow pie plate; lightly dredge crab cakes.
In a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat, heat butter until hot but not smoking (add more butter if needed). Gently lay chilled crab cakes onto bottom of the pan; slowly fry crab cakes approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side or until crisp and golden brown, turning once only with a spatula. If the crab cake browns too quickly, reduce heat. The internal temperature should be 150 to 155 degrees F. with an cooking thermometer. Remove from heat, transfer onto a serving platter, and serve hot with Green Onion Sauce.
NOTE: These crab cakes are also great as a starter course of your dinner meal.
