Luscious Crab Burger
This burger was created with the surf & turf lover in mind. I'm not the best cook in the world, but I have "cooked up" several grill recipes that are often requested by friends and family. The Luscious Crab Burger is my favorite!

1 tsp. chopped garlic
1 can of crab meat
1 stalk celery-chopped
1 to 2 tablespoons of mayonaise

1 beefy tomato lettuce leaves
6 strips of bacon or substitute real bacon pieces
Large Kaiser or poppy seed buns

Sometimes I add a dash of lemon juice to the crab mix. I do not add any other seasoning to the meat as the rock salt works wonders in bringing out all the natural flavors.
