Crab salad

Crab meat has been expensive this year so I’ve been looking for more ways to stretch a pound of crabmeat into two separate dinners.  The crab fried rice and crab rolls make two good dinners and work out well splitting the pound.  I’m saving calories by skipping the roll – I’ll just have the crab salad on sliced tomatoes.  We’ll have gazpacho on the side.

Crab Rolls

This is my Maryland version of the classic Maine lobster roll

  • 1/2 pound of crabmeat
  • 2 TB mayonnaise
  • 1 TB lemon juice
  • 1 stalk celery, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 hot dog rolls
  • 1/2 tsp butter

Butter hot dog rolls and toast lightly in a toaster oven.  Combine all other ingredients gently and mound crab salad in hot dog rolls.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
