Spicy Crab Rolls

For the launch of the new BBQ Mix filled with a wonderful array of beautiful edible flowers and herbs, these delicious Spicy Crab Rolls will be a favourite at your next BBQ or gathering. Using the decadent Kewpie mayonnaise and Shichimi Togarashi, a Japanese seven-spice blend of chilli, herbs and seaweed, they are utterly moreish. These edible flowers not only look beautiful but also they add a wonderful dimension to these warm, buttered brioche rolls filled with the spicy crab.


Serves 4

  • 150g White crab meat
  • 50g Kewpie mayonnaise (or regular mayonnaise)
  • 4 Spring onions finely chopped
  • 10ml Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Shichimi Togarashi (you can use less if you enjoy less spice. If you don’t have any of this, you can use some sesame seeds and chilli flakes)
  • 4 Brioche rolls
  • 1 tbsp Butter, melted
  • A sprinkling of Shichimi Togarashi to serve
  • 5g Chopped chives (to decorate)
  • A selection of edible flowers from the Nurtured in Norfolk BBQ Mix (to decorate)
  • Lemon wedges


  1. Prepare the brioche rolls by slicing and toasting in a hot pan to give a little colour. Brush with melted butter.
  2. In a bowl, add the white crab meat, kewpie mayonnaise, finely sliced spring onions, lemon juice and the shichimi togarashi. Mix well until all incorporated.
  3. Fill the warm toasted brioche buns with the crab mix, finish with a pinch of chopped chives, a little more shichimi togarashi, and a selection of beautiful edible flowers for colour, flavour and texture.
