My friend makes amazing fried crab sticks using frozen crab sticks that she buys at the store. She just breads them lightly and fries them up in a skillet. They are so rich and juicy and the sweetness of the crab comes out front and center.
I think that she got her crab stick recipe from the company that makes the batter she uses. A lot of times the recipes on the sides of boxes are no good but this one breaks the trend.
