  1. Place all the crab burger ingredients into a bowl and mix well until combined. Season and shape the mixture into two evenly sized burgers. Place the burgers on a plate, cover with cling film and then chill for a minimum of 2 hours.
  2. For the fennel slaw, place the fennel and white cabbage into a bowl. Add the mayonnaise and lemon juice then mix until all of the vegetables are coated. Season to taste and chill until required.
  3. Attach the grill plates. If using the Griddle & Grill, select the Grill/Panini setting and set the temperature to 'HIGH'. If using the 2 in 1 Grill & Sandwich Maker turn the control dial to 'HIGH'. Once the appliance is up to temperature, place the crab burgers on the lower grill plate and close the lid, cooking for approx. 5min until crisp and golden brown.
  4. To serve, layer each bun base with the baby spinach leaves and fennel slaw, then place the crab burger on top, followed with the top half of the bun to finish.
