crab cakes unhealthy?

I was always under the impression that crab cakes were considered unhealthy. however, i got a craving for them recently and decided to make my first attempt at them. here is the recipe i plan to use:

1 lb lump crab meat
1/2 panko breadcrumbs
2 eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp old bay seasoning
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp mustard

When i add up the total calories and divide by 8 cakes at the least they are only 100 calories each. What gives? Is it that the cakes in restaurants use a lot more breadcrumbs and mayo or is my impression of crab cakes as unhealthy incorrect?
