Crab and Fried Green Tomato Sandwich
1/2 recipe of Fried Green Tomatoes
2 french rolls
1 ripe tomato sliced
1/2 pound crab meat
1 stalk celery diced
3 T mayonnaise
1 T dijon mustard
1 t lemon juice
1 t chopped dill
Combine crab, celery, mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice and dill. Split open and toast the french rolls. If you've just finished making the fried green tomatoes, drain off most of the oil and toast the rolls directly in the same pan. Lay two slices of fried green tomatoes on the bottom of each roll, followed by the fresh tomato slices and finally the crab salad. Enjoy!
*Note: if you're using crab claws like I did, you'll want to first get a little more than a 1/2 pound to account for the shells. Secondly, a good technique for getting every little bit of meat is to pull the two pieces of claw apart as shown until they come fully apart. The connective tissue will pull out the back attached to one piece of claw while leaving all of the meat in the remaining claw shell.
