Corn and Crab Fritters with Sunny Spiked Aioli

Author Notes: Because my husband loves sauces and I wanted a lighter version of aioli for corn and crab fritters, I came up with the following recipe, no huge changes from other aioli recipes, lighter with a touch of my ground red pepper flakes and a teaspoon or two of my favorite orange juice from Cara Cara oranges.

Equipment, the whisk attachment on the stick blender, moments to make.

Serves 4

  • 1 whole egg + 1 yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cups mild olive oil
  • 1/4 cup EVOO
  • 3/4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons juice from a Cara Cara orange
  • 2 small cloves of garlic
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • pinches of ground red pepper flakes
  1. Egg and pressed garlic in the stick blender jar, whisk for several seconds on medium low speed, slightly thickened, slowly add the oil until you get a smooth thick aioli.
  2. Place in serving bowl and sprinkle a little ground red pepper.
  3. Keep in mind that I didn't want to overwhelm the crab flavor or fresh corn in the fritters, but you can certainly adjust any of the ingredients to suit your own taste.

Now I'm curious (and heading to Google to find out what a Cara Cara orange is!). i love the addition and fragrance of citrus in this = delicious

I'm thinking that Old Bay aioli would be great with the fritters.

Sure, certainly not one that I created, but one that I prefer. Not sure about posting a copyrighted recipe, but I have noted that it is a Colin Cowie recipe and found a link to his recipe as well. I took a look at his aioli recipe, interesting, but that amount of garlic, mustard and lemon sounds like too much for crab to me.

Can you post the crab and corn fritter recipe? Sounds like a killer combo.
