How to make it

  • In a bowl, whisk together mayo, pickle and mustard. In a small heavy skillet, cook onion and bell pepper in butter over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until softened. In a bowl, stir together onion mixture, crab meat, scallion greens, 6 Tbsp. mayonnaise, egg, 1 Tbsp. bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne, and salt to taste. Put remaining 1/2 cup bread crumbs in a small bowl and put a piece of plastic wrap on a work surface. Form one fourth crab mixture into a 3-inch patty (it will be soft) and coat with bread crumbs, transferring to plastic wrap. Make 3 more patties in same manner with remaining crab mixture and bread crumbs. Refrigerate several hours. In a 10-inch heavy deep skillet, heat 1/4 inch vegetable oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking and fry patties until golden and cooked through, about 2-1/2 minutes on each side, transferring to paper towels to drain. Spread bread with reserved mustard mayonnaise and sandwich crab and lettuce between bread.

    My mother lives in FL and has for almost 20 years, she is a transplant from WI. Wish I was there now as our weather here leaves little to be desired of:( However everytime we go down south I always find a restaurant that serves Po Boys as I am in love with them. Now you have handed me a recipe that I can make here in WI, can't wait to try it:) thanks again for all your wonderful recipes!

    I am a Po' Boy nut, so this recipe caught my eye right away. This sounds so good, CB...I can't wait to try it. *Sigh* My love affair with the Po Boy has gone on for years and years...ever since I met him that first time in New Orleans. =) Thanks so much!
