When I saw this recipe the other day at "Just one Cookbook" I knew that I have to make it. I love fried food. I Love it so much that I am not making it that often, simply because I cannot stop eating. However this recipe was so unique to me and I had to make it right away.
When I spoke to Nami, she said that mixture was not easy to work with, and she was right. It was not easy at all, but once you finish these tasty patties you will see how delicious they are. They are crunchy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside. I did add few more ingredients, hopefully she will not mind, and you all would like!
I am sure that you already know her website Just One Cookbook, but if you never heard- you have to check it out. Nami's traditional Japanese and non-traditional recipes are just amazing. The women can cook!!!
Homemade Delicious Crab Croquettes



Serves 4-5
Ingredients:

  • 1  onion, sliced
  • 2  Tbsp. butter
  • ½  cup (50g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼  cup milk
  • 1  Vegetable bouillon cube
  • ½  tsp. Ground sea salt*or more
  • ½ Tbs. ground black pepper
  • 1 pkg. crab meat, or fresh crab meat., chop
  • ½  cup corn kernels
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • handful of chopped fresh spinach
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2    eggs, beaten, season it with bit of salt,pepper and chilly powder.
  • 2 cups of bread crumbs
  • Canola oil for frying
Direction:
  1. In a frying add butter and onion slices(thin slices), saute for 5 minutes or until onions become softer.
  2. Add about 2 Tbs. flour and stir fast to prevent from burning, while stirring pour milk in and make the mixture smooth. 
  3. Season it with salt,pepper and add bouillon cube.
  4. Add corn kernels, crab meat, chopped spinach and shredded carrot.
  5. Mix it one more time and add more flour to make it bit thicker, but not too thick.
  6. Pour whole mixture in the deep dish, much like baking pan to cool down for next 30 minutes or more if needed. 
  7. Once the mixture is chilled take a three bowl and put in one flour, second one eggs, and third one bread crumbs. Mix the eggs and season with salt, pepper and chilly powder.
  8. Oil your hands really good, and grab handful of mixture, put in the flour first, and form the thick patties; following with egg dip than bread crumbs.
  9. Put all the finished patties on the clean plate and in the fridge for 15-20 minutes, this step is important because you want to let them saddle, chilled some more, and they will not pop while frying. Also make sure to make smaller patties.
  10. Preheat the oil, and recheck if it is hot enough just by tossing a pinch of flour. If the flour is bubbling the oil is ready.
  11. Add few patties at the time in the frying pan. Fry for the few minutes in each side. 
  12. Place them on the kitchen paper towel so the paper can all the excess grease out of the patties.

I served it with cherry tomatoes, chives and sour cream salad. 
If you make this you will not be disappointed!!!!!


Serve hot and immediately!!


Enjoy!
Your friend

  1. Drool.... just kidding. Seriously you made it so nice! I do love the addition Sandra. Spinach for green, carrot for red... It's more nutritious for kids too! Awww thanks Sandra for cooking this. See, I told you it's little tricky to make patties. But I'm sure that was the only part you would think twice "is this worth it??". Then when you eat... ohhh delicious. I can hear the crispy biting sound and creamy inside... I have to cook this again SOON!! Thank you so much for cooking this and introducing it again. You did such a great job! I'm so happy!

  49. No sauce is necessary with these since they are so creamy delicious. I added some fresh parsley and grated lemon rind. You are so right about not making these too often. I wonder how they'd freeze?

    ReplyDelete

  54. Thank you Sandra for restoring our faith in crab. We went out the other night and had the MOST awful crab cakes. I had no idea anything could be made to taste that bad.. on purpose, no less. we swore we'd never eat crab again. I think an evening with this recipe will cure the crabby blues... yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yum! I was eying that recipe on Nami's site...glad it turned out well for you!

    ReplyDelete
  56. It has milk in it - fascinating and accounts for that wonderful creaminess. The photos are just gorgeous - I'm ready to make them.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Wow! This is something I would really enjoy--and my family too! I really like how the tomato, chives, sour cream salad sounds too. Perfect accompaniment!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Sandra-Such a coincidence. I was browsing through my seafood recipes, and came across the crab cakes which I have not made in a long time. My recipe had the fresh corn as well.
    Your crab cakes look totally perfect and over the top delicious.

    Love the presentation, and the photos...and before I forget, Congratulations on the top 9 with your well deserved mention of your amazing crab cakes:DDD
