Cut crab and shrimp into small chunks or ground like texture. In large bowl add shrimp, crab, zest of lemon plus juice of 1/2 of the lemon, 1 tsp. garlic, parsley, green onion, and salt & pepper then thouroughly mix. Add egg whites mix well then work in cream cheese. Next mix in bread crumbs. Divide into 6 equal portions & form into oval shaped patties. Set aside. Prepare grill by rubbing down with vegetable oil. Rub bell peppers with EVOO, place on a medium to medium- high grill. Grill until blistered & well roasted. Set on warming rack of bbq. Mix 1/4 c. of EVOO with 1 tsp. of garlic then brush onto 1/2" slices of ciabatta bread. Grill both sides of bread on medium to medium-high heat until crusty/golden brown grill marks. Wrap loosely in foil & set on warming rack. Place patties on the well oiled grill. Grill 3 minutes with lid closed on medium to medium-high heat flip & cook another 3 minutes with lid closed. Flip again, add cheese and cook until melted then remove. Slice reserved lemon into 6 wedges & slice red pepper into thin slices. Place patties onto bread, add 1/6th of red pepper to each pattie, top with butter leaf lettuce, and second piece of bread, serve with lemon wedge to be squeezed on patty just before eating.
The roasted red pepper adds a sweet burst of flavor that compliments the shrimp & crab nicely. Even my kids love this recipe. Enjoy!
