Crab croquette sandwiches recipe (kani korokke sando)
- Cuisine: Japanese
- Makes 6
IngredientsVegetable oil, to deep-fry
12 slices white bread
Butter, Japanese mayonnaise* and butter lettuce leaves, to serve
3 sebago potatoes, peeled
½ onion, finely chopped
300g crabmeat, picked for bones
80ml (⅓ cup) pouring cream
2 eggs, lightly beaten
50g (⅓ cup) plain flour
150g (2 cups) panko breadcrumbs*
PreparationTo make croquettes, chop the potatoes. Place in a pan of salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain, return to pan and mash.
Transfer potato to a bowl and stir in onion, crab and cream. Season with salt and pepper, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm.
Whisk eggs with 1 tbsp water in a shallow bowl. Place flour and breadcrumbs in separate shallow bowls. With lightly floured hands, roll crab mixture into 6 even balls, then shape into 10cm discs. Gently toss in flour, dip in egg mixture, then coat in crumbs. Place on a tray lined with baking paper.
Fill a deep-fryer or large pan one-third full with oil and heat over medium heat to 170°C (or until a cube of bread turns golden in 15 seconds). Working in batches of 2, drop croquettes into oil and fry, turning halfway, for 4 minutes or until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel.
Spread bread with butter and mayonnaise. Top half the slices with lettuce and a croquette, and sandwich with remaining bread. Cut in half and serve.
* Japanese mayonnaise and panko breadcrumbs are available from selected supermarkets and Asian food shops.
