    Manami's Note:

    Given how delicious crab fluffs are, it's a surprise that they remain virtually unknown outside of Maryland (unlike the über-popular crab cake). Truly addictive crab fluffs are about two things -- sweet crab meat and crispy batter! Serve these little morsels at your next party with lemon wedges, tartar sauce or white horseradfsh and ketchup, and these fluffs will be gone so fast you'll wish you had made more of them!.;) CuisineAtHome, Issue 74, April 2009.
