Delicious Deep Fried Crab Meat Balls

Delicious Deep Fried Crab Meat BallsLet's make an appetizer with crab meat. It's also a perfect candidate for a cocktail party. Serve it piping hot with your favorite dip. For best results, keep the raw meatballs chilled in a refrigerator and deep fry them right before serving. Vegetarians can substitute crab meat with combined potato and cauliflower mash. I prefer to serve these meatballs with honey mustard sauce. Use canola or peanut oil and fry them on a medium-high flame to get the best flavor. If you do not like deep-fried food, go ahead with the baking process. Without any fail, make extra servings of this appetizer as it's going to vanish from the platter in no time. Let's quickly make these meaty, fulfilling, and flavorful balls, right now!
