Directions

Crab Balls:

In a heavy, deep pot, preheat peanut oil to 365 degrees F.

For the Tartar Sauce, combine all ingredients into a food processor and blend to achieve desired chunkiness, adjust seasoning and chill until ready to use.

For the Crab Balls: In a large bowl, moisten bread crumbs with heavy cream. Mix in remaining ingredients. Shape into balls about the size of a walnut. Fry in oil until brown, about 5 minutes per batch. Serve Crab Balls while hot, with tartar sauce. Balls can also be made ahead of time and reheated.

House Seasoning:

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
