Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and onions and cook until the onions are translucent. Add the rice and stir to combine with the onions. Cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken stock, parsley and saffron. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until all of the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender but still has a bite to it. Transfer the rice to a bowl and chill in the fridge until cooled.

Fill a large, deep skillet halfway with vegetable oil and heat the oil to 350 degrees F over medium-high heat.

Place the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in three separate deep plates or small baking dishes. Add the cornmeal to the breadcrumbs, season with the parsley and seafood seasoning and stir to combine.

Stir the crabmeat into the cooled rice. Form into patties and gently roll in the flour. Then dip in the eggs and then in the seasoned breadcrumbs.

Fry the cakes until golden brown, turning once while cooking. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and season with salt. Serve warm.
