This week's recipe features sweet and meaty snow crab - a great alternative to lobster when cut into chunks and tossed with homemade mayo. It happened to be on sale at Whole Foods this weekend and I just couldn't resist coming home with a bagful. If this isn't an invitation to summer, I don't know what is!
Snow Crab RollsMakes 4 rolls
1/3 cup homemade mayonnaise (follow my basic recipe here)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Pinch each salt and pepper
2 cups cooked, chopped snow crab
4 hotdog buns, grilled
1 tbsp butter
Small handful of pea shoots
In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, cilantro, salt and pepper. Fold in the snow crab chunks.
In a small pan on medium high heat, melt the butter. Cut buns in half lengthwise almost all the way and place the pieces cut side-down in the pan, swirling to make sure the pieces absorb all the butter. Remove when lightly golden.
Fill buns with snow crab mixture and top with pea shoots. Serve with cornichons and lemon wedges. Enjoy!
