Crab Cake Sliders with Spicy Aioli Sauce

I have been dreaming and thinking about crab cake sliders for a while now.  However, my husband believes that crab cakes should not be sandwiched between two buns.  Well, I asked around on facebook and twitter on whether you wanted crab cakes or fajita sliders.

Man oh man ….. crab cake sliders won!!!

That just gave me even more ammunition to make these and have him fall in love with them.  We are also not fans of mayonnaise in our house.  Mustard or just plain dry wins every time.  I knew that I could not slather these delicious sliders with mustard and opted to make a spicy aioli sauce — GASP!

Plus we liked this sauce.  Another GASP.

These sliders went perfectly on the King’s Hawaiian ® Dinner Rolls.  You can find these rolls in most local grocery stores and they come in savory or sweet.  I think my hardest decision on these actual rolls at the grocery store was sweet or savory.  As you can tell the savory won out and I was pleased that they complemented the crab cakes so well.

I toasted the rolls just slightly before adding the crab cakes and sauce.  Nothing beats toasted bread especially when you love what’s on it!

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

Combine all of the ingredients into the bowl except for the lump crab meat. Mix it well with a spoon and then add in the crab. Cover with saran wrap and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Remove crab mixture and use the cup of your hand to make crab cake sliders. Form into balls and place into a well oiled skillet on medium/high heat. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side.

In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients for the aioli sauce. Toast the King’s Hawaiian Rolls and place one slider on each roll and then top with aioli sauce.
