Frituras De Cangrejo (Crab Fritters) Preparation

foam, add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the sherry, crabmeat, and parsley and cook, stirring, until the onion is tender, another 5 minutes. 2. In a large bowl, sift the flour together with the baking powder, salt, and pepper. Pour in the eggs and mix by hand until the batter is smooth. Add the onion-and-crab mixture and stir to blend. Refrigerate the batter, covered, at least 2 hours. 3. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. In a large heavy-bottomed skillet or deep fryer over medium-high heat, heat 2 to 3 inches of oil to 375 degrees, or until a drop of batter sizzles when it touches the oil, and fry 1 tablespoon of batter until golden brown. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary in the remaining batter, then drop the mixture by tablespoonfuls into the hot oil, and fry the fritters until golden brown on all sides, turning with a slotted spoon. Do not fry too many at once, or the oil temperature will fall and they will be soggy rather than crisp. Place the fritters on a paper-towel-lined platter in the oven until all have been cooked, and serve hot, sprinkled with lime juice.
