  • ¼ cup mayonnaise (I like Hellman’s)
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. grated lemon peel
  • ¼-½ tsp. Old Bay seasoning, to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb. cooked lump crabmeat, all shells removed
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped celery
  • 4 Tbs. finely chopped Spring onions
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 lg. hot dog buns, top split open
  • 2 Tbs. butter, room temperature
  • 4 lg. Boston lettuce leaves
  • 4 lg. slices of tomatoes, cut in half

Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon peel, Old Bay seasoning and salt and pepper in medium bowl.

Gently add crabmeat, chopped Spring onions and the chopped parsley.

Spread butter on insides of hot dog buns.

Warm a large cast iron skillet over medium heat.

Gently place buns, buttered side down, in preheated skillet and toast until golden, about 5 minutes. Be careful not to break or burn rolls.

Place 1 toasted bun on each plate.

Place 1 lettuce leaf inside each bun.

Add 2 half slices of tomato on half of the bun.

Divide crab among buns and serve each crab roll with potato chips and a pickle on the side.
