Courses: Starters and appetizers
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

4 oz 113gCrabmeat
4 oz 113gTofu - drained
1   Egg yolk
2 tablespoons 30mlRice flour
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlSalt
2 teaspoons 10mlSoy sauce
2 tablespoons 30mlFinely chopped spring onion greens
2 tablespoons 30mlGrated ginger root
  Peanut oil for deep frying
  Tempura dipping sauce

Recipe Instructions

Serve these crab and tofu dumplings as a side with a light soup, or with a tempura dip as an hors d'ouevre. You can also include these dumplings as part of a main meal with tempura.

Makes 4 servings

If using canned crabmeat, drain completely.

Over a small bowl, press the tofu through the mesh of a strainer with the back of a spoon. Add the crabmeat and mix together. Combine the egg yolk, rice flour, salt, spring onion greens, grated ginger and soy sauce with the crabmeat/tofu mixture. Stir to form a stiff paste.

(At this point, you can set the 'batter' aside and make the tempura dipping sauce.)

Heat peanut oil on high in a wok (or heat to 375 F in a deep fryer). Using a tablespoon, spoon up portions of the crab-tofu batter and slide off into the frying oil, six or so dumplings at a time. Deep fry for a couple of minutes, until golden. Remove from oil and drain on paper toweling. Repeat with the remaining batter until finished.

Serve with sauce and grated radish.
