Crab Salad Sandwich with Old Bay Dressing




When it's too hot to make crab cakes, this crab salad sandwich makes a very delectable alternative that also happens to be lighter and less oily and bready. Even though the crab is tossed in a mayo-based sauce, the lemon and Old Bay seasoning keep it light and zingy. Serve the salad on lettuce leaves if you'd rather skip the roll. Buy the best crabmeat you can afford — it really makes a difference!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (from ½ of a lemon)
  • 2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 celery stalk (finely chopped)
  • ½ small red pepper (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil
  • 1 pound jumbo lump crabmeat (picked through for shells)

  • 8 small brioche rolls or potato rolls

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, and Old Bay. Fold in the celery, red pepper, basil, and lump crabmeat, being careful not to break it up too much but making sure everything is coated evenly.
