Shape into four cakes, about 1 1/4 inches thick. Place remaining panko in a shallow bowl. Add crab cakes; lightly coat on both sides.
  2. In a very large nonstick oven-safe skillet, heat oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add crab cakes. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden on both sides, turning once. Place skillet in oven and bake 10 to 15 minutes or until 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.
  3. Meanwhile, for Apricot Sauce, in a small microwave-safe bowl stir together apricot fruit spread, mustard, and ground ginger. Microwave on high for 20 to 30 seconds or until heated through. Spoon apricot sauce over crab cakes and serve
