½ Lb. seafood (crab, lobster, fish, shrimp, crawfish)
4 medium potatoes
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. horseradish
Boil potatoes until cooked. Drain, put into a large bowl and mash. Add onion, horseradish, seafood and egg. Season to taste with salt, pepper and garlic powder. (A dash of Tabasco can be added!) Mix well. Drop mixture by tablespoons into a bag of all-purpose flour and shake well to coat. Shape into patties and fry over medium heat, until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towel.
Extra yummy when served with a simple lemon sauce: 3 Tbsp. butter, 5 tsp. all-purpose flour, ¾ C. milk, 2 Tbsp. lemon juice, ¼ tsp. salt. Over medium heat, melt butter in a saucepan. Slowly stir in flour, then milk to form a smooth paste. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower heat and cook until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and salt. Makes 1 ½ cups.
