Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup tartar sauce
  • 2 tablespoons crab boil seasoning (recommended: Old Bay)
  • 10 thick slices Pullman loaf or country white bread
  • 12 ounces (2 1/2 cups) jumbo lump crabmeat, picked over for shells
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 8 thick slices Pullman loaf or country white bread
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing bread
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 6 cups torn frisee (about 5 ounces)

Directions

1. Stir together the tartar sauce and crab boil seasoning in small bowl and set aside.

2. Tear 2 slices bread with crusts into small pieces and put into a bowl with the crab. Add the mayonnaise, Worcestershire, egg and a pinch of salt. Mix together gently, then form into 4 patties.

3. Preheat the broiler. Heat the butter in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until hot, add the crab burgers and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 6 minutes total. Brush the remaining Pullman slices with oil on 1 side and place under broiler and toast to light golden brown.

4. Stir together shallot, lemon juice, and mustard with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in large bowl. Whisk in 2 tablespoons oil, then add the frisee and toss to coat.

5. Place the Pullman toasts plain-side up and spread with tartar sauce. Top 4 bread slices with frisee, a crab burger and remaining bread slices. Serve any remaining frisee salad on the side.
