1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 cup chopped fresh crabmeat
1 cup chopped cooked shrimp
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
8 slices firm white sandwich bread
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
Chopped fresh Italian parsley

Whisk mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients in medium bowl. Gently mix in crabmeat, shrimp, celery, and onion. Season filling with salt and pepper.

Arrange 4 bread slices on work surface. Spread 1/4 of filling on each slice (about 1/2 cup). Top filling with bread slice; press to adhere. Brush top bread slice of each sandwich with melted butter.

Place large griddle over 2 burners. Heat griddle over medium heat. Place sandwiches, buttered side down, on griddle. Cook until bottom is golden brown, 6 to 7 minutes. Brush top of each sandwich with melted butter. Using metal spatula, turn sandwiches over. Cook until bottom is golden, about 5 minutes.

Cut each sandwich into quarters. Transfer to platter. Sprinkle with parsley.
