We love crab cooked many ways here in Southern Maryland. This is one of my family's favorites. They are golden and crispy on the outside, smooth and savory on the inside! We do not use cocktail or tartar sauce, but feel free to use them if you like. If you use frozen crab meat, drain it well before using. You may also make these as big or as small as you like - just adjust cooking times. And as always, keep an eye on them as deep fryers all cook a bit different!
