My family loves these. You don't need to use the curried tartar--you can use regular, but the curried tartar is what sets this recipe apart. I ask you to give it a try before deciding against it!

  • Melt butter in a frying pan. Add celery, onion, and bell peppers; saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool.

  • Place bread crumbs and crabmeat in a large bowl. Add cooled vegetables, eggs, seafood seasoning, pepper, and cayenne; mix until well blended and moist. Form crab mixture into 1 1/2- to 2-inch balls.

  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium or medium-low heat. Add crab balls and flatten the tops with a spatula. Fry to a golden brown, about 5 minutes. Carefully flip and repeat to brown the other side. Drain on a wire rack.

  • Serve with curried tartar sauce.

Cook's Note:

For fresh bread crumbs, process bread or rolls in a food processor or blender until fine.
