McDonald’s Is Testing the Country’s First Fast Food Crab Sandwich

Getting a head start on the coming Lent season, McDonald's is testing a new Crab Sandwich  -- the first fast-food crab sandwich -- at four locations in California's Bay Area, the Mercury News reports.

The sandwich features snow crab blended with seasoned mayo and diced celery and topped with sliced tomato and romaine lettuce atop an herb-butter sourdough bun, and was created by Bay Area chef, restaurateur and "Top Chef" contestant Ryan Scott.
