Crab Roll


From EatingWell:  July/August 2011

This healthier take on a lobster roll uses crab because it’s usually easier (and less expensive) to buy. But by all means use lobster if you prefer. Serve with coleslaw and an ice-cold beer.

4 servings, about 2/3 cup crab filling each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Whisk mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, hot sauce, pepper and salt in a medium bowl. Thoroughly mix in shallot, celery and 3 tablespoons chives. Mix in crab very gently so it doesn’t break up too much.
  2. Line each bun with lettuce and divide the crab filling among the buns. Garnish with the remaining 1 tablespoon chives.
