Day 34: Crab Cakes with Garlic Aioli

As part of my contribution to the Super Bowl celebration, I made crab cakes with my garlic aioli.
It's a perfect h'orderve and an upscale alternative to the regular party fare.
Hope you enjoy!

4 large eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/4 cup red pepper, finely chopped
2T chives, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
