2 Tbsp finely chopped green onion
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

In a small mixing bowl, add mayonnaise

And chili sauce, worcestershire sauce and horseradish
Add chopped green pepper and green onions
Pour in 1 Tbsp lemon juice
Mix all ingredients together until sauce is smooth.  Place in the refrigerator to cool.  May be made several days ahead of time.  This sauce is very good as a substitute for tartar sauce with fried or baked fish or shrimp.  
Steam enough crab to make one cup of meat when cracked.  For a quicker preparation, frozen lump or claw meat is acceptable too.
Shell the crab using kitchen shears and a nut pick. 
Place crackers on a plate and put a small dollop of sauce in the center of each cracker.
Toss one tablespoon melted butter with the crab
Put a mound of crab onto the cracker and into the sauce.
Place another small dollop of sauce on top of the mound of crab
Add a small mound of caviar onto the sauce.  Garnish with parsley or veggies.  Serve immediately.
And there you have it.  Tasty appetizers!!
