Big T Crab Dip Sliders and Spicy Remoulade

Prep Time:  40 minutes

Cook Time:  5 minutes

Yield:  4 sliders

Ingredients

1 container Big T original or jalapeno crab dip

1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)

1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

1/4 cup scallions, chopped

4 slider rolls

1/2 cup arugula

4 sliced tomatoes

Spicy Remoulade (recipe below)

Vegetable or canola oil for frying

Steps

Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil.  Prepare a bowl with 1/2 cup panko.

In a small bowl, combine the crab dip, old bay seasoning, scallions and 1/2 cup panko.  Fold mixture together gently.  Shape into 4 crab cakes and coat each cake with the remaining panko.  Place the cakes on baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 

Preheat a non-stick skillet and coat with oil.  When oil is hot, place cakes in pan and cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side.  Once done, place on paper towel to remove excess oil.

Spread slider buns with spicy remoulade and top with crab cake, arugula and sliced tomato.
