Crab Cream Croquettes Made with Healthy Soy Milk

Crab Cream Croquettes Made with Healthy Soy Milk

Crab cream croquettes made with canned crab meat. I used soy milk to make them healthier. You can really taste the crab in these croquettes!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Canned crab meat
1 can
Onion
1/2
Soy milk (or regular milk)
300 ml
Margarine (or butter)
50 g
White flour
50 g
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Flour (for the coating)
30 g
Egg
1
Panko
as needed

Steps

1. Slice the onion.
2. Saute the onion with margarine in a frying pan.
3. When the onion is translucent, add the flour and continue sauteing.
4. If you cook it thoroughly here until any flouriness is gone, it won't form lumps later.
5. Add soy milk little by little, in 4-5 batches. Mix well to form a paste.
6. Season the paste with salt and pepper. Add the canned crabmeat, liquid and all.
7. Mix for 2 to 3 minutes over heat. The sauce may be a bit loose here, but it will firm up when it's chilled so don't worry.
8. Put the sauce into a shallow container, and chill in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
9. Divide the sauce and form into croquettes. Coat each one with flour, egg and panko, and deep fry in 355°F/180°C oil until golden brown.
10. Done!
