Taste one bite and you'd bet that these lovely, light fritters were fried in a swanky New Orleans restaurant kitchen, but instead, they come right from your skillet. And the best part is that their preparation time is around five minutes because the batter is based on a biscuit mix like Bisquick. Buy the best lump crabmeat you can find. You only need a cup so indulge. You can most likely find lump crab meat in your supermarket or grocery store seadood section.
Ingredients For Your Crab Fritters
1. 1/4 Cup Creole Mustard.
2. 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise.
3. 2 Cups Vegetable Oil.
4. 1/2 Cup Bisquick Mix.
5. 1/4 Cup Whole Milk.
6. 1 Large Egg.
7. 1/4 Cup Fine Diced Green Onions Including Tops.
8. Dash Of Hot Pepper Sauce.
9. 1 Cup Lump Crab Meat.
10. 2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley For Garnish.
Make a Creole mayonnaise. Place the mustard and mayonnaise in a small glass bowl and stir to combine.
Pour the oil into a skillet and heat over medium heat to 350 degrees.
Place the biscuit mix, egg, green onions and hot pepper sauce in a medium size mixing bowl and stir to combine. Fold in the crab meat. When the oil is hot, drop in teaspoonfuls of the batter, 8 to 10 at a time.
Fry the fritters until deep brown, 1 minute, then turn them with a slotted spoon and fry until deep golden brown. Remove the fritters with the slotted spoon to paper towels and allow them to drain very well.
Repeat frying the rest of your fritters until all the fritters are done.
To serve, place the bowl of Creole mayonnaise in the center of a serving platter. Surround it with the crab fritters. Sprinkle the chopped parsley over the fritters and serve.
