> 4 ground beef hamburger patties
> 1 large tomato
> 1 large shallot
> 1 tbsp olive oil
> 1 tsp minced garlic
> 1/3 cup bottled clam juice
> 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
> 1 (8 oz) pkg crabmeat, or fresh picked crab meat
> 4 Kaiser rolls
> 4 leaves butter lettuce


Grill burgers over medium-high heat for 10 min, flipping halfway through.
While burgers are cooking, slice the tomato and set aside. Mince shallot and sauté with the olive oil and garlic in a skillet until shallot is translucent, about 5 min. Add clam juice and bring to a simmer, stirring until reduced, about 30 sec. Stir in mustard and crabmeat and cook 3 min., or until warmed through.
Toast split Kaiser rolls on edges of grill. Top each roll with a lettuce leaf, tomato slice, burger patty, and ¼ of the crab mixture.


If you want to be totally decadent, substitute 8 oz cooked lobster meat for the crab.
