On a recent trip to my favourite food shop Fuji Mart, I discovered some scallop and crab “creamy croquettes” in their freezer section. I’m a big fan of Japanese style croquettes, and I have previously made them from scratch at home. It’s a pretty long and involved process though. Frozen products aren’t exactly my favourite thing in the world, but on occasion they can come in handy. Especially when you are craving a Japanese croquette. I thought I would give them a go. I couldn’t decided between the scallop type or the crab, so I bought one of each.
First step, to cook the croquettes. I couldn’t understand the ambiguous (and written in Japanese) instructions on the back of the packet, so I just shallow fried them in sunflower oil.
And the verdict on the croquettes? Not bad at all. Although, neither of us could really tell the difference between the crab and the scallop types. But they were rather tasty – would definitely have again!
