Lobster Sliders
Meat from a 1 1/2-pound cooked lobster (1 1/4 cups)–
cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons crème fraîche
1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 tablespoon finely diced dill pickle
2 tablespoons finely diced celery
1 1/2 teaspoons minced tarragon
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
Kosher salt and freshly ground white pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
Eight 2-inch round soft dinner rolls, split
In a medium bowl, mix the lobster with the mayonnaise, crème fraîche, shallot, pickle, celery, tarragon and lemon zest. Season with salt and white pepper and refrigerate until ready to use. Lightly butter the cut side of each roll. Heat a large skillet over moderate heat. Toast the rolls in the skillet, cut side down, until lightly golden, about 1 minute. Transfer the rolls to a work surface. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the lobster salad on the bottom half of each roll. Close the sliders and serve.

1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup soft, fresh breadcrumbs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
12 brioche rolls, split
1 cup arugula
Stir together first 6 ingredients. Cover and chill 30 minutes. Shape chilled crab mixture into 12 patties (about 1/3 cup each). Place breadcrumbs in a shallow dish; dredge both sides of patties in breadcrumbs. Fry patties in hot oil, in batches, in large skillet over medium-high heat 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels.
Place 1 crab cake on bottom half of each roll–top each with arugula and a dollop of the

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a medium bowl, mix the shrimp with the celery, mayonnaise, lemon juice, chives, parsley and basil–season the shrimp salad with salt and pepper.  Using a paring knife, cut a 2-inch round from the top of each roll. Discard the filling from the rolls, set the rolls on a baking sheet and warm in the oven, about 5 minutes. Butter the inside of the rolls and fill with the shrimp salad. Top with the lids and serve.
