you might try playing around with the sauce from this recipe

Gingered Shrimp Cakes

1 lb. large shrimp, cooked
4 scallions, sliced, green parts included
1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
Grated lemon zest from 1 lemon
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2 C fresh corn, cooked, cut off cob
1 lg egg
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/2 tsp salt
Pinch of ground black pepper
1 1/2 C fresh bread crumbs or panko (divided)

2 Tbsp olive oil (or more, for frying)
1 Tbsp butter (with the oil, for frying)

Coarsely chop shrimp in bowl. Add scallions, ginger, lemon zest, parsley and corn. Combine mayonnaise, egg, hot sauce, salt and pepper and fold into shrimp mixture.
Add 1 Cup breadcrumbs and gently mix.
Form into 4 patties and gently dredge in remaining 1/2 C breadcrumbs, adding more if necessary.
Put on a plate, cover with plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 min and up to 4 hours.

Heat oil and butter in large skillet over med-high heat. Saute cakes until cooked through and golden brown on both sides, adding more oil to skillet as needed, about 8 minutes.

Chile Garlic Sauce

To make Chile-garlic cream sauce, combine 2 Tbsp chile-garlic sauce ( from Asia aisle at supermarket) and juice of 1/2 lime with 1/2 cup sour cream or cream fraiche.

Spoon about 3 Tbsp of sauce on each plate and place shrimp cake on it, serve immediately.
Makes four servings.

Variation: Substitute lump crab meat for the shrimp.

Here's one that doesn't have mayonnaise in the sauce & it's made ahead which always helps.

Red pepper sauce. Blacken two red peppers over the stovetop flame, put in a paper bag and let steam the skins til they're loose. Then peel the skin off (leave some of the charred skin) and pulse in a food processor with some sauteed garlic and olive oil. nice.

If you want something on the non-pepper side, squeeze some fresh lemon juice and let 'er rip. Or, reduce some cream with sun-dried tomatoes in oil that have been chopped fine, little garlic, some basil.

mmm.. you don't say WHY you are avoiding mayo, so hard to answer. It it the fat? I often subsitute low fat yogurt for mayo in recipes like crab cakes (I am a Marylander too). Mayo only serves as a binder in crab cakes so they don't fall apart as you cook them. After all... the star of the show should be ... #1, the crab; and #2 ... the crab. (use only lump backfin from blue crabs too). If fat is an issue try broiling instead of frying. And never ever use mayo or tartar sauce on a good crab cake. They need nothing or at very least a tiny bit of cocktail sauce (ketchup and horseradish).
