3Add in shrimp. crab meat (if you're using it), and mixed vegetables and combine.
4Heat oil in a skillet on medium-high
5When the oil is heated, drop large spoonfuls of the batter into the oil and fry until golden. Use a bamboo skewer and poke it through the patty to make sure it's done. If the skewer comes out clean, then it's just right.
