What you need1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper
crushed red pepper flakes
6 oz canned crab meat
2 tbsp shredded cheese
1-2 cups croutons (or breadcrumbs)
vegetable oil for frying
What you do1. In a food processor, grind the croutons until you've gotten a breadcrumb consistency. I used garlic and herb croutons, which added some extra nice flavor.
2. Saute onions in butter until soft. Remove from heat and add, seasonings, crab, egg, cheese and 4 tbsp breadcrumbs. Mix well. You can add more breadcrumbs if the consistency is too mushy.
3. Form balls from your crab mixture and roll in breadcrumbs to coat. Fry in hot oil then place on paper towel to soak up the excess oil.
4. I served the crab balls with a mixture of ketchup, hot sauce, bbq sauce and buffalo sauce - a perfect mixture of spicy and sweet. Would also be tasty with tartar sauce.
