Sherri's Story

I love crab! These are perfect for a party, starter or just a snack. Crab is rather expensive... this is my way of being frugal and still being able to enjoy these lil' delites. You won't find alot of filler in my balls. I want you to enjoy the crab! I made these for my Homeowners Annual meeting 10/22/2011. These babies were a hit and not one left on the platter. They will go fast so you may want to sneak 1 or 2 for yourself before serving. These will be perfect for any holiday party! Cooking With Passion, sw:)

Thanks Sherri for your reply. My question though was about the sriracha sauce. Could I use Tabasco or it wouldn't be the same? Thanks!

Helli Maria, the crab balls would be great on baked on a silpat or parchment papaer lined baking sheet at 350 degrees F. I would also spray a little cooking spray on the crab balls right before you place them in the oven. This will ensure their crispiness and even brownng. I hope this helps and please let me know how you like these. sw :)

Hi Sherri! My family and friends love crab and all other seafood. I'm having a dinner party next Sunday and I will be making these. Glad I came across these yummies and to know I can bake them. But I don't think I can find the shriracha sauce here in Greece. Would Tabasco work?
