New England Crab Rolls


Creamy lobster salad heaped onto a buttered, toasted hot dog bun is the
quintessential summer sandwich in northeastern shore towns. This is an
equally delicious and more economical variation. Serve with: potato chips,
sweet pickles, and carrot and celery sticks.




6 tablespoons mayonnaise


1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


1 teaspoon grated lemon peel


1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


3/4 pound fresh crabmeat, picked over


3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions


2 tablespoon (1/4 stick) butter, room temperature


4 hot dog buns, sides split open


4 red leaf or Bibb lettuce leaves




Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon peel, and cayenne pepper in
medium bowl. Mix in crabmeat and chopped green onions. Season crab salad
with salt and pepper to taste. Spread butter onto insides of hot dog buns.
Warm large skillet over medium heat 1 minute. Place buns, buttered side
down, in preheated skillet and toast until golden, about 5 minutes. Place 2
toasted buns on each of 2 plates. Place 1 lettuce leaf inside each bun.
Divide crab salad among buns and serve.


Makes 2 servings.
