Preparing the slaw:
In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, Dijon, lemon juice, paprika, cayenne, parsley and salt and pepper, to taste. Using the grater attachment on the food processor or a box grater, grate the celery root. Work quickly so that the root doesn't turn brown. Transfer to a medium bowl, add pour the dressing over the celery root. Toss to combine and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Preparing the crab burgers:
In a large bowl, whisk mayonnaise, egg, scallions, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, hot sauce, and salt and pepper, to taste. Fold in the crabmeat and 1 cup of the bread crumbs until just combined. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and form into patties. Put the patties on the baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to firm up.

Remove the crab patties from the refrigerator. Place the remaining bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dredge the patties in the bread crumbs and pat along the edges.

Heat the oil in a 12-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until the oil is hot but not smoking. Place the patties into the oil and cook about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towel lined plate to drain. Season the patties with salt while they are still warm. Place on baking sheet to hold in a preheated 250 degree F oven while you toast the buns.

Slice the Kaiser rolls in half, butter, put on a sheet pan and toast under the broiler.
