Crab Rolls have become the rage. Out West we have simply referred to these sandwiches as Crab Meat sandwiches which has been on the menu forever. The East Coast has always had the Lobster Rolls. Now, with a little marketing strategy, the new name our on the West Coast has become Crab Rolls. I surfed the web looking at different recipes for the Crab Rolls. I actually settled on 4 different recipes. None of them used the exact amount of Crab Meat that we carry in a container which is 6 ounce or 1 pound. What’s a girl to do? Make up my own as I go! In my household everyone knows for one reason or the other I can’t just follow a recipe word for word. Didn’t have my glasses on or didn’t have that specific ingredient. It’s become the joke of my household. It always tastes good.
The first night I made Crab Rolls for my husband and I. The second night I added the Crab Meat Salad to a green salad. The third day I had a Crab Meat Salad for lunch. Yes, 1 pound of Crab Meat went a long way. The juices of Crab Meat and lemon juice were amazing. In fact, I would like to go out on a limb and say that marinade for a day enhanced the flavors even more. Perfect for those hot summer days when you want something light and yummy!
Combine all the ingredients above to make the Crab Meat filling except the Hoagie Rolls, melted butter, and lettuce.
Brush the melted butter on the Hoagie Rolls and toast until golden on inside of the bread.
Place 1 lettuce leaf on each bun and then divide the Crab Meat filling.
Any Crab Meat filling left over will be great the next day!
The lemon juice and zest make this filling very light. Not even the mayonnaise was over bearing.
