This was absolutely outstanding! I could only find lump crabmeat in 1 pound packages so I increased the amounts of mayo by 2 T. and added extra lemon juice, zest and cayenne. I whisked it all together in step one and then added the green onions to that mixture before adding it to the crabmeat because I wanted to keep those lumps of meat intact. It worked. This was delicious and we'll be doing again soon...I'd like to try it with lobster, or maybe even shrimp. DO NOT skip grilling the bread, it really adds to this sandwich. Thanks chia!
These sandwiches are awesome! I love the taste of lemon in them. I have made these at least three times in the last month. I use artificial crab and they still taste great. Try them on a toasted french roll with or without the lettuce.
This was Epic! Reason I gave it 4 stars is I added about 1/2 teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning. Everything else i did exact. Honestly I don't measure when I cook so I may have added more Lemon Juice. You just can't mess this one up. Also I don't have fresh crab this time of year but had some frozen imitation snow crab and it tasted awesome. Thanks for the post.
Oh yum!! Because I live in a rural area of the midwest, I didn't have truly fresh crabmeat available. I used the new pouches of "fresh" crab found in the meat case. (They are similar to the pouches of tuna, but must be refrigerated.) This sandwich was still great!! I used cheap white hamburger buns instead of the hotdog rolls, and agree with Hey Jude that grilling the buns makes a huge difference in this sandwich. I added a slice of garden-fresh tomato and thought I was in heaven. So simple, so great. I think that this would even be good if prepared using the tuna in the pouches.
I guess since travelling to maine every summer and having their crab rolls, which are outstanding... this was just a bit too lemony for me and DH. I'd decrease the lemon next time, but overall it was an o-k-a-y crab roll.
These were terrific! I used a can of crab from Costco (1 lb) and made 6 sandwiches. My teenager ate 3 of them and would have liked more. The only change was to use onion powder instead of scallions (no one but me will eat them.) We'll be making these again for a quick lunch/dinner.
