Crab Rolls with Lemon Aioli
New Orleans chefs often drown seafood in rich, spicy sauces, but here, chef Jason McCullar of Cure simply dresses sweet crabmeat (a Louisiana staple) in lemon-scented aioli.

The crab salad can be refrigerated overnight.
This riff on an New England lobster roll is rich but nicely lemony. The combination works well with a lightly oaked California Chardonnay that has some heft but a citrusy freshness as well.
