How to make it

  • Crab Cakes:
  • Fry the bacon in a frying pan over medium heat until lightly browned (about 2 minutes)
  • Add the shallots, bell pepper, celery and garlic and cook until soft but not browned (about 2 minutes)
  • Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and let cool.
  • Stir in the crab, herbs, cracker crumbs, Old Bay, salt ad pepper, and cayenne.
  • Fold in the egg and enough cream to get a moist but firm consistency. If too wet, add more cracker crumbs.
  • Wet hands with water and form the crab mixture into 8 small patties. Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • heat clarified butter in a non stick frying pan and Pan fry the crabcakes until crusty and golden brown - approx 3 minutes each side.
  • Drain on a paper towel and set aside.
  • Sandwich:
  • Slice open the rolls lengthwise and spread the bottom halves with the mayo and the top halveswith the mustard.
  • Layer the sandwich with 2 crab cakes on each bottom, swiss cheese, 3 tomato slices on each, lettuce and then the pickle slices.
  • Cover with top of the roll.
  • Lightly butter the entire outsides of the sandwiches and place in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Pleace a weight, like a bacon press on top or flatten the sandwich with a long spatula.
  • Cook the sandwiches until crusty and golden brown on both sides approx 2 to 3 minutes per side, adding butter to the pan as necessary.
  • Slice the sandwiches in half on the diagonal and serve at once!
