i stopped by hutton's seafood in medart (near apalach) this spring and found deviled crab patties. different than the cuban deviled crab roll/croquette or the deviled crab in the shell, this was a reddish patty of crab and what i assume to be breadcrumbs, etc. it was served fried or seared on the griddle in their trailer. it was savory and a little sweet, and i was surprised to find this variation.
do any of you know if this is a local specialty or does it have roots elsewhere? do any recipes exist? can it be found elsewhere? all info greatly appreciated!
