Prepare lemon mayonnaise and place bread slices on a rack to air-dry for one hour before making sandwiches.
In a medium bowl, combine crab, cream cheese, artichokes, parsley and 2 tbsp (30 ml) of the lemon mayonnaise. Taste and season with pepper. Add a dash of hot sauce for an extra kick.
To assemble the sandwiches, divide half of the cheese slices on two slices of bread and spread the crab mixture on top. Top with remaining cheese and bread. Spread the remaining mayonnaise on the outside of each sandwich.
In a large non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Cook sandwiches, turning once, for 6–8 minutes, or until browned and cheese is melted.
Lemon mayonnaise: In a small bowl, combine ⅓ cup (80 ml) mayonnaise, 1 tbsp (15 ml) each grated lemon zest and lemon juice; mix well. Allow flavours to blend about 20 minutes.
