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.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
