If you're a fan of crab meat, you'll love this delicious and easy-to-make crab rolls recipe. Made with fresh lemon juice, yogurt, mayo, and a variety of spices, this recipe will have your taste buds dancing with delight.
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- Pinch of Pepper
- 1 cup yogurt
- Pinch of Garlic powder (or if you're a garlic lover, use the real stuff)!
- 5 tablespoons mayo
- ½ tsp of Cumin
- 1/4 cup fine chopped parsley & dried oregano mix
- Cooked Crab (King, Bairdi, Dungeness, etc.) – approximately 5-6 lbs
- 6 Tablespoons of fine chopped chives
- 6 Tablespoons minced shallots
The day before serving, defrost the crab meat.
The next day, squeeze out as much moisture as possible and remove all cartilage. Chop the crab meat into small and medium pieces.
In a large container or bowl, mix together all the ingredients, cover, and let sit for at least 2 hours. For best results, let it marinate overnight.
For the rolls, brush each side of the roll with olive oil and toast over a stove or a grill pan.
Fill each roll with crab mixture using a slotted spoon. Enjoy!
If you do let it marinate overnight and find that there seems to be a too much liquid, you can drain some of that out.
If feels like it needs more, add small amounts of salt, pepper, or Mayo/yogurt and lemon juice. You want it to taste like crab and be lightly coated and not too much mayo.
The ingredients don't have to stop where we did in this recipe! We have put kale, spinach, red peppers, tomatoes, pepperoncinis (the list goes on), into this recipe before. Any variation is truly spectacular.
