”What are the little balls with a stick in them in your pictures?”
I promised to post the recipe as soon as I had the chance.
Why not make it a Macro Monday post eh? After all, these ARE macros, right?
They’re crab balls. I made up the recipe because I wanted to use some leftover rice.
I had about a cup of white rice, - maybe just a little bit more – to which I added:
a small tin of crab meat.
one egg, beaten.
a tablespoon of each of finely chopped celery, red bell pepper and shallot.
a teaspoon of mustard.
a couple of tablespoons of white flour. ( just enough to get the right consistency)
salt and pepper.
You can of course use any vegetables you have in your fridge, you could use spring onions and carrots or whatever. Mix all the ingredients together and shape it into balls about the size of a walnut.
Then cover them with breadcrumbs. I used Panko, the Japanese breadcrumbs, because it’s a little bit crunchier than traditional breadcrumbs.
Deep fry them in oil, and serve with hot chili sauce as an appetizer.
