This awesome sandwich is reminiscent of the famous Maine Lobster Roll, and made with ingredients that are easy to find.

An incredibly easy and fairly inexpensive recipie. An excellent way to use up your leftover mock crab from making sushi and so forth. The Old Bay seasoning is a must; if you don't have any pick some up as it is invaluable when cooking seafood.

I did not like. I think the onions did not go well.

I liked this a lot. It's the closest thing I can get to a Maine lobster roll. You do need to let the flavors blend though.

Leftover lobster would certainly be a lot better in this recipe but when we have lobster there are no leftovers. My kids and hubby really like imitation crab meat so this was definitely a treat for them and it did taste very much like the Lobster Rolls we had up in Boston last summer. Very good Erin!

Try a crab(imitation or fresh)with shredded lettuce mayo and scallions on a 3-4oz.cresant roll topped w/shredded monterrey jack cheese.Heat @ 325 untill cheese melts.

I didn't think this would turn out so great with such simple ingredients. But this easy sandwich mix is my new favorite seafood meal ever! I didnt use Old Bay Seasoning. Instead i used McCormick's Gourmet Collection Seafood Seasoning (basicly the same thing but more expensive. I coudn't find Old Bay). I made it the night before so the flavors blended for quite a long time. Once my boyfriend tried it he couldn't stop eating it. He ate 3 sandwiches!! (and he is not a big eater). Yummmm!

WOW! I cannot believe how delicious and flavourful these simple ingredients become! Like a previous reviewer said you MUST allow for the flavours to mingle (I left it in the fridge overnight). It is wonderful on any bread; I love it on a fresh croissant. Thank-you for this recipe! My search for delicious seafood salad is over!

This was surprisingly good! I made it only to use a package of imitation crab that had been lingering in the freezer for too long but I'd make it again. My in-laws live in Maine so I've enjoyed many lobster rolls over the years. This is a far cry from the real thing but it's an enjoyable sandwich in its own right.

These sandwiches were SOOO Yummy! I used less mayo more lemon juice and more red onions out of personal preference. Then I used fresh sub rolls from the bakery instead of hot dog buns. SOO Delicious!
