Crab Fritters with Chipotle Aioli

A wonderful appetizer to serve your guests over the holidays. Prepare a little tray to pass around when your guests arrive. The crab fritters are festive and tasty with a slight spice kick.

10-20 Appetizers/ Hors d'oeuvres

Ingredients for Crab Fritters:

1/4 Cup Pine Nuts
1/4 Cup Panela Cheese or Feta Cheese
2 TBSP Shallot Onion
2 TBSP Fresh Cilantro
1 Egg
1 Lime Juice and Zest
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 Cup Crab Meat
1/2 Cup Panko Japanese Bread Crumbs

2 Cups Canola Oil for deep frying

Ingredients for Chipotle Aioli:
1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
2 TBSP Lime Juice
1 TBSP Grated Garlic
1/4 tsp Ground Chipotle
1/4 tsp Ground Paprika
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Chop nuts, cheese, onion and herbs fine in a food processor or very fine with a knife.
2. Whip egg with juice, zest, salt and pepper before adding it with the crab meat into nut blend.
3. Mix well and make small bite size patties to turn in bread crumbs.
4. Heat up oil to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
5. Drop patties into hot oil carefully and flip them over when edges are golden brown. Only cook a few fritters at a time so oil stays hot enough.
6. Remove fritters with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel when they are golden brown all around.
7. Mix mayonnaise, juice, garlic, salt and spices for the Aoili.
8. Plate crab fritters on a platter with a dot of Aoili on top.
9. Enjoy!
