Hot Crab & Shrimp Sandwiches

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Leilani

This is a very easy to put together meal which is filling and very delicious. My family is always asking me to make it. If you don't like shrimp, omit and add 1/4 lb more of crab. I have always made this with imitation crab, but I am sure fresh crab would be even more delicious.

some variations: monterey jack, sourdough, real crabmeat, a hint of cayenne (just a hint, don't want a crab sandwich to be "hot") and mixed w/1/2 mayo, 1/2 sour cream...I leave out the lettuce/tomato in mine, but will add it next time to see the difference. Thanks for sharing!
