This is a sandwich that I make at least once every couple of months. It's so quick and easy, and so delicious! Cool, sweet crabmeat, crunchy celery and a hint of cajun spice in a creamy mayo, piled onto a bed of lettuce on your favorite bun or roll is just a seafood-lovers delight!

How to Make CAJUN CRAB SALAD SANDWICH

Step-by-Step

  1. If using fresh crabmeat, drain and pick over crab for bits of shell; if using imitation crabmeat, use kitchen shears to cut into small bite-sized pieces in a medium bowl.
  2. Add 1/8 cup chopped celery.
  3. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, Louisiana Cajun Seasoning and/or Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning and a pinch of salt. (You may use more cajun/creole seasoning, if desired; just be aware of the saltiness and the heat of the seasoning.)
  4. Add to crabmeat; stir gently to combine.
  5. At this point you may smear your chosen bread with softened butter, or olive oil, and lightly toast in a toaster oven, place buttered side down in a medium-hot skillet to toast, or just leave it untoasted, your preferrence.
  6. Place lettuce on bun, then spoon on the crab mixture and add the top. Serve. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
