An Old Bay crabcake sandwich with a spicy chipotle mayo will take you back to the beach. There’s nothing to stop you from making this delicious summertime favorite when you’re far from the ocean. You just need to find the key ingredient – delicious lump crab meat.
The spicy chipotle mayo gives this sandwich the right amount of kick without taking away from the flavorful sweet meat between the buns.
I like to spoon a little chipotle mayo right on top of the crabcake and then add my favorite toppings. I prefer to add a fresh slice of tomato from the garden. My husband tops his with bacon. This crabcake sandwich is also delicious with a simple leaf of lettuce.
Who says you can only enjoy crabcakes at the beach?

- 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
- 1/2 of a lime, squeezed
Prepare the chipotle mayonnaise
- Blend together the mayo, chipotles, adobo sauce and lime juice until puréed and well blended. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Make the crabcakes
- Mix together all the ingredients, using your hands if necessary. Shape into four large patties. Be sure to refrigerate the crabcakes for about 30 minutes before cooking. It helps to keep them together while cooking. Using a cast-iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat and add the crabcakes to the pan. Fry them flipping once until golden brown on each side, for a total of about 5 to 6 minutes.
- Transfer the crabcakes to your choice of sandwich rolls. Sandwich a crispy crab cake between the bun halves and top with the chipotle mayo and the toppings of your choice.
