DIRECTIONS

  • Combine crab meat, panko, scallions, and zest in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together mayonnaise, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and cayenne pepper.
  • Gently fold mayonnaise mixture into crab mixture until the two are thoroughly combined; try to avoid breaking up the crab meat.
  • Stir together the egg yolks, milk, beer, and 1 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning for the batter in a large bowl.
  • Sift in flour and baking powder; stir mixture with a fork until batter is just combined. (Some lumps are OK.).
  • Heat 1 inch of vegetable oil in a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat to 360º degrees.
  • Form crab mixture into balls the size of large gum balls (about one rounded tablespoons each).
  • Working in batches,coat crab balls with batter, then use slotted spoon to carefully lay them into hot oil.
  • Turn fluffs frequently until they're evenly browned, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove fluffs to a paper-towel-lined tray.
  • Serve fluffs immediately, or keep them warm in a 200º degree oven for up to 30 minutes.
