A few weeks ago, my husband and I ate at the restaurant ABC Cocina in the Flatiron District of NYC. Our appetizer course was a Peeky Toe Crab and Corn Fritter with a Chipotle Aioli that we both went nuts over. So this past weekend I wanted to try and recreate that fritter as best as I could.
These fritters were to die for! I have ideas of how I may experiment with the recipe in the future (maybe substituting seltzer for the milk to see if it gives it a fluffier texture)…but until then, this recipe was awesome!
I got the crabmeat from one of my favorite seafood purveyors in NYC, The Lobster Place (located in the Chelsea Market). I have tried the cheap canned crabmeat that they sell in supermarkets and it’s literally inedible. Spend the extra $10 and get the real deal! Peeky Toe Crab was not in stock so I got Blue Crab (just as delicious!)
