To make the fritter
batter, combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. In another smaller bowl, whisk
together oil, milk
, egg and black pepper. Add the egg
mixture to the flour mixture and combine until all dry ingredients are moistened.
Heat oil to 375 degrees F in a deep-fryer.
Mix panko bread crumbs
, Cajun Seasoning
, mayonnaise, parsley and lemon juice. Fold in crab meat, trying to avoid breaking up lumps. Form crab mixture into "cocktail
size" balls. Place the crab ball on a slotted spoon, and holding over the bowl of fritter batter, ladle enough of the batter
over it to coat. Deep-fry
in hot oil until golden brown and drain
Whisk together mayonnaise
and Chipotle Chile
Powder. Season, with salt, if needed. Serve crab
fritters with spicy mayo as a dipping sauce
