Recipe: Crab Cream Croquettes

I absolutely adored these. They’re pretty simple to make and you can use canned crab or those krabsticks that are really fish puree to make them. They go well with thick dipping sauces and you can make them ahead of time and freeze them before frying for a crowd or for an easy lunch.
