Course Appetizer, Lunch, Snack
Servings 8 fritters


  • 12 oz imitation crab legs (aka crab sticks) shredded like string cheese
  • 1 "baby" cucumber, julienned
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Serious Foodie Indonesian Sambal Hot Sauce
  • 6 thin slices of red onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • canola oil for frying
  • extra Serious Foodie Indonesian Sambal Hot Sauce for dipping or drizzling
  • extra shredded cucumber for garnish and health


  • Heat about 1/2 inch oil in a large skillet.
  • In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients until well-combined. Ladle about 1/4 cup of the batter into the hot oil. Repeat with remaining batter--you may have to do this in batches, depending on the size of your pan. Fry until the bottom is golden and the mixture is nearly set then flip using a spider or frying tongs and cook the other side until golden--just about 3 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towel-lined plates.
  • Sprinkle the cucumber on the serving plate, add a dish of the hot sauce to dip, and arrange the fritters on top of the cucumber. Serve immediately.
