Fritters are one of those irresistible comfort foods with a unique history and even more unique flavor—and it all depends on the chef which direction your fritters will go! Whether made with a sweet flavor profile or savory one—like our corn and crab fritters—there is no mistaking a crispy, tender fritter for anything else.
So simple, yet so divine
Corn and crab fritters are crispy on the outside and moist, steamy, and tender on the inside. That's a winning combination! These crab fritters are no more difficult to make than any other type of fritter, but there is no denying that the addition of the king crab to the mix adds a level of flavor that your taste buds will appreciate. The rich and buttery flavor of king crab is a welcome upgrade to a classic dish, so get ready to love these crab fritters.
Starting with a basic fritter batter of fine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt, our recipe for crab fritters goes a whole new direction with crab meat and corn. Some cayenne pepper and finely diced red peppers add a kick and help bring out that rich crab taste. Eat them alone, fresh from the pan, or pair them with an assortment of exciting dips. No matter how you choose to eat them, they'll soon become a favorite snack.
