Dungeness Crab Sandwich


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.
