There are lots of different ways to make crab sandwich recipes. You could use fresh crab, canned crab or even imitation crab combined with mayonnaise or sour cream. Another way is to make crab cakes and fill the sandwich with those. Serve them while they are still hot, adding some salad ingredients too and even a little grated cheese if you want.
The crab cakes in the following recipe are made with crabmeat (canned is fine) as well as parsley, lemon juice, mustard and more. Serve the crab cakes in a crusty baguette or between slices of bread. You will need quite thick bread slices for this mammoth sandwich though. Crab sandwich recipes are always popular at cafes and restaurants and now you can make your own.
Pan-fry the crab cakes in a little oil or butter or bake them in the oven until they are golden brown on the outside and piping hot in the center. If you do not want to make a sandwich, you can serve these crab cakes just as they are with some salad greens on the side and maybe a nice dip. You can make a flavorful dip by stirring a little lemon juice or mustard into mayonnaise or sour cream.
- 1 baguette, 12 inches
- 2 lettuce leaves
- 4 tomato slices
- 4 sweet onion slices
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise or creamy dressing
- 4 lemon slices or wedges (optional)
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- ½ teaspoon parsley flakes
- 1½ teaspoons prepared mustard
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup finely crushed Ritz crackers or breadcrumbs
- 1½ teaspoons melted butter
- 8oz crabmeat
- ½ teaspoon seafood seasoning
- ½ teaspoon lemon juice
- Stir together the mustard, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, parsley flakes, crushed crackers or breadcrumbs, melted butter, seafood seasoning, lemon juice and egg until well combined.
- Gently fold in the crabmeat but do not break up all the lumps.
- Shape the mixture into 4 crab cakes.
- Bake them at 375 degrees F or pan-fry them for about 15 minutes or until they are browned all over and 165 degrees F inside.
- Cut the baguette into a pair of 6-inch pieces and slice each one across the middle so you have 4 pieces of bread in total.
- Spread the mayonnaise over the bottom halves and add the lettuce, onion, and tomato on top.
- Add 2 hot, cooked crab cakes to each one, and then add the top halves so you have 2 complete sandwiches.
- Serve immediately, adding a couple of lemon slices to each plate if you like, or a wedge of lemon.
Although there are hundreds of different crab sandwich recipes, using homemade crab cakes to make the sandwich means you can serve something hot and truly mouthwatering. The crab cakes are quick to make and you can pan-fry or bake them while you are slicing the bread and salad ingredients. In fact you can make this from start to finish in twenty minutes, which is perfect if you are looking for speedy snack inspiration. Crab cakes are really good and the crunchy exterior contrasts amazingly with the soft, flavorful interior. This makes a satisfying lunch or a light dinner.
