I picked-up some freshly cooked Dungeness crabs recently. I thought maybe I'd make some nice crab sandwiches for lunch that same day and perhaps, turn the balance into some crab pasta the next day. Did just that! Fresh asparagus, pea shoots, cherry tomatoes, with the freshly baked baguettes made this a really yummy sandwich! By the way, I did not make the baguettes from scratch. I usually buy part baked baguettes and complete the baking process at home. So, do try the recipe and I hope you will like it too.
Dungeness Crab Sandwich
300 g Cooked Dungeness Crab Meat
Juice of 1 Lemon plus more to taste
5 to 6 Tbsp Mayonnaise
Sea Salt to taste
Some Freshly Ground Black Pepper

250 g Cherry Tomatoes, sliced
80 g Young Pea Shoots
1 Small Bunch Fresh Basil Leaves
1- 2 Fresh Red Chilies, chopped finely
Combine the crab meat, lemon juice, mayonnaise and season well with salt and pepper.
Slice the baguettes in half and remove a little bit of the soft center. Fill the rolls with asparagus, crab meat, chilies, tomatoes, pea shoots, basil and some freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately.
