Crab sliders are a great reminder of all the time I’ve been spending in Louisiana. This is one state that knows how to work hard and party hard. Every time I make one of these crab sliders I’m going to be thinking of all the great people I’ve met and all the delicious food I’ve eaten.
Someone hand me a fork! Doesn’t that look good?
I hope you like these crab sliders as much as I do.
Crab Sliders Recipe
4 King Crab Legs
8 Slices Glutino Multi-Grain (gluten-free)
¼ Cup Spectrum Canola Mayonnaise
¼ Cup Diced Organic Green Onion
¼ Cup Diced Organic Tomatoes
1 tbsp. Fresh Squeeze Organic Lemon Juice
2 tbsp. Melted Organic Butter
½ tsp. Simply Organic Onion Powder
½ tsp. Simply Organic Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper
Fill a large pan with 1 to 2 inches of water. Bring to boil. Add crab legs. Boil for approximately 5 minutes. Remove crab legs from water. Set aside and let cool.
Dice green onion and tomato into small pieces. Slice lemon in half. Set aside.
Add butter to small microwavable bowl. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Set aside.
Preheat oven at 250 degrees F.
Use hands to break lobster apart at joints. If you can pull crabmeat from shell without breaking further, go ahead. Otherwise, take knife and make one continuous cut down each shell. Pry shell open with fingers and remove crabmeat.
Cut crabmeat into various sizes. Place crabmeat in a medium mixing bowl.
Drizzle 1 tbsp. melted butter over crabmeat. Stir. Add diced green onion, diced tomatoes, mayonnaise, freshly squeezed lemon juice, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir. Place in refrigerator.
Lay 8 slices multi-grain bread on aluminum foil sheet. Take a round drinking glass and press down over each slice. This will create slider size top and bottom buns. Drizzle 1 tbsp. melted butter on top of slices. Place in oven for 3 to 4 minutes or until just crispy (rotating sides halfway through). Remove bread from oven.
Scoop crabmeat mixture onto bottom slices of bread. Add top buns. Plate your crab sliders onto serving dishes and enjoy this seaside staple! Best served with potato chips and an ice-cold beer or orange soda.
Cool Tip: You can even use the crab claws as picks through each slider to hold them together.
