Crab Sensations

Crab Meat is one major delicacy you rarely find in family meals, probably because of the cost of sea food, or the stress of getting the meat out of  its shell, or the lack of what to cook with it.
Crab is really good in soups and surprisingly sandwiches.

For Sandwiches:…
Boil crab till its tender and get your meat out of the crab
mix with Philadelphia cheese or any grated cheese of your choice, sprinkle some black pepper
top with lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes
Serve with white bread, brown bread or baguettes  .
This can also be made as a toast or made as a Panini.
Simply fill up bread with crab mixture and its topping, then place in a toaster or panini machine to cook.
