Directions:
Gently fold all ingredients together with a rubber spatula in a bowl. The crab meat may need to be picked apart. Once combined, it should be a sticky pliable mixture. Form loose balls...if not add more mayonnaise. Then pour a little olive oil into a frying pan and place over medium heat. Put either bite sized balls or palm size (main dish) in the pan until the space is filled up. Fry each side until golden brown. Then remove and serve hot with lemon and tartar sauce.
