8 oz lobster

24 oz light beer

1 lemon, halved

2 cloves garlic, mashed

Crab and Lobster Mixture

8 oz crab

pinch seafood seasoning

1 tsp Creole seasoning

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp shallots, finely chopped

½ cup red, yellow and green peppers, chopped

½ lemon

Breadcrumb Mixture

1 cup Italian breadcrumbs

½ cup red, yellow and green peppers, chopped

1 tsp cayenne

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp salt

1 Tbsp pepper

2 eggs

½ cup half and half cream

2 Tbsp dried thyme

½ cup Parmigiano-Reggiano

2 Tbsp basil

1 Tbsp dill


3 oz sweet Thai chili sauce

3 Tbsp mayonnaise

1 tsp red pepper flakes


Seafood Patties


8 slider buns or small Hawaiian rolls, toasted

1 cup arugula or baby spinach



1. Place whole lobster in a pot and submerge with beer. Add lemon and garlic. Boil for 8-10 minutes or until lobster shell turns a reddish colour.

2. Immediately put lobster into an ice bath to cool for approximately 5 minutes. Once cooled, remove lobster meat from shell, and shop into small chunks.

3. Cook’s note: You can substitute with 8oz of cooked lobster.

Crab and Lobster Mixture

1. Over medium-high heat, sauté olive oil, shallots, and garlic until shallots become slightly caramelized. Add peppers.

2. Add crab and lobster to pan and continue to sauté until crab is cooked- about 5 minutes. Add seasoning and finish with a squeeze of lemon juice.

Breadcrumb Mixture

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, peppers, nutmeg, salt, pepper, thyme, basil and dill.

2. Then add the crab and lobster mixture from sauté pan. Once combined, add the cream, eggs and the Parmigiano-Reggiano. After fully combined, form into patties and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour.

3. Once patties are chilled, heat oil in fry pan at medium-high heat. Fry crabby lobster patties on each side until golden brown—about 4 minutes per side.


1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until combined.


1. Place crab and lobster patties on sliders buns, top with sauce and some arugula or baby spinach. Serve!
