Hot Crab & Shrimp Sandwiches

Total Time

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!

We really enjoyed this on sliced sunflower seed bread. I used a Seafood 7-pepper seasoning salt, real crab and a diced vidalia onion. This would be good with a nice sharp cheddar cheese instead of the mozzarella when eaten cold. I plan on having the leftovers on crackers for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for sharing leilani.
