Original recipe yields 20 fritters



  1. In the container of a food processor, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish, garlic, and lemon juice. Process until well blended. Transfer to a bowl, stir in chives, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy saucepan or deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Stir together the hush puppy mix, milk and egg until smooth. Fold in the crab. Drop tablespoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes, turning once if needed. Drain on paper towels. Serve fritters with the garlic sauce.

Freaking Awesome. These are simple, easy, and maybe the best recipe on the website. I seldom make recipes without significantly more reviews and am extremely happy I tried this one. Good by themselves and with the sauce. do yourself a favor...make these and don't screw with the ingredients. I will never make regular crab cakes again after these bad boys. ( First review ever because they deserved it )



Very easy, very tasty. Warning that this recipe makes A LOT! One batch is enough to take to a party. Each teaspoon full of batter puffs up to about 3 times its size.



"FANTASTIC!!"I love the sauce,too!!One of the best recipes I've gotten here!
