Buttery Snow Crab Baguette Roll Recipe

Creating a buttery snow crab baguette roll is a delightful way to enjoy the rich flavors of snow crab combined with the crispness of a fresh baguette. Here’s a recipe that’s easy to follow and sure to impress:


  • 1 lb snow crab meat (cooked and picked from the shell)
  • 1 French baguette (or 2 smaller baguettes)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning (optional)
  • Lettuce leaves (optional, for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Crab Filling:
    • In a large bowl, combine the snow crab meat, lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. If using, add the mayonnaise and Old Bay seasoning. Gently mix until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the Baguette:
    • Cut the baguette into 6-8 inch sections (or as desired), then slice each section lengthwise, leaving one side attached to create a hinge.
    • Optional: Scoop out a small amount of bread from the inside to make more room for the filling.
  3. Make the Garlic Butter:
    • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
    • li>Add the minced garlic and cook for about 1-2 minutes, until fragrant but not browned.
  4. Remove from heat and brush the inside of the baguette sections generously with the garlic butter.
  5. Assemble the Rolls:
    • Line the inside of the baguette with lettuce leaves if using.
    • Spoon the prepared snow crab mixture into each baguette section, packing it gently to ensure it’s well-filled.
  6. Serve:
    • Optionally, brush the outside of the baguette with any remaining garlic butter for extra flavor.
    • Serve immediately while the bread is still crisp and the filling is fresh.


  • Crab Meat: Ensure the snow crab meat is fresh and fully cooked. Freshly picked crab meat will yield the best flavor.
  • Bread Freshness: Use a fresh baguette for optimal texture and taste.
  • Customization: Add slices of avocado, tomato, or even a dash of hot sauce for a customized flavor profile.

Enjoy your buttery snow crab baguette roll, a perfect blend of rich seafood and crisp bread!
