2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 teaspoon of mustard
2 teaspoons of Old Bay seasoning
2 slices of white bread, crusts removed & crumbled
1 egg, beaten
1 small bunch of green onions, chopped
1 lb of lump crabmeat
1/2 lb of boiled shrimp, (liquid shrimp/crab boil, powdered shrimp/crab boil, or both can be used according to taste)
1 cup of vegetable oil
Half of a lemon, the juice will be squeezed over the balls once cooked
For the shrimp: boil the shrimp in your favorite shrimp/crab boil. I used a small amount of both liquid & powdered shrimp/crab boil since I like my shrimp on the spicy side. Once the shrimp are boiled and have soaked for a while, peel and chop them.
Heat the oil in a pan on med/high heat. In a large bowl, mix bread, mayonnaise, Old Bay, green onions, mustard, and egg in large bowl until well blended. Gently stir in the crabmeat and shrimp and shape into small balls. Fry in batches in hot oil until golden brown turning once. Drain on paper towels. Lastly, squeeze lemon juice over the crispy crab & shrimp balls. Can be served with tartar sauce, cocktail sauce, or hollandaise sauce. Enjoy!
