The recipe my dad uses for his "famous" crab fritters. Very addictive.

  2. To make the fritters: drain and flake the crabmeat; remove any bits of shell; set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the biscuit mix and next 5 ingredients; stir to combine; make a well in the center of of the dry ingredients.
  4. In another bowl, mix together the milk, egg, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce; add this mixture to the dry ingredients; stir just until moistened.

FYI, this is a word-for-word recipe from the June 1998 edition of Southern Living magazine. I still can't wait to try it :)

I make this same recipe exactly. It is an awesome recipe. Everytime I make it as an appetizer for parties it is a huge hit. I am surprised no one has tried it yet.
