Spring is here!

And with the arrival of spring, Conway’s has a great variety of seafood to  help celebrate the warmer weather outside.

Crabtastic Recipe

We have managed to secure a boat load of the freshest, yummiest cooked and ready to eat crab meat. So Mary from the office has a special recipe that would make a great appetiser - just the thing to start off the party.

Crab Meat Fritters:

Ingredients: (Make about 15 x 35g pieces)

·         2 x Medium Carrots Grated

·         1 x Large Onion Grated

·         1 x small red or yellow capsicum chopped.

·         1 x tomato chopped/diced

·         1 x Egg

·         1 x Crab Meat 227gm jar

·         2 x Tablespoons fresh parsley chopped.

·         2 x Tablespoons Olive Oil.

·         ¾ cup Flour plain

·         ¼ cup water

·         ½ teaspoon Salt

·         ½ teaspoon Pepper

·         ½ teaspoon Oregano


1)      In a mixing bowl add the grated carrot & onion and the chopped capsicum & tomato.

2)      Add crab meat, egg, chopped parsley, olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, flour, and water.

3)      Mix all ingredients thoroughly.

4)      Should be a nice thick batter which just covers the ingredients.

5)      Place in Fridge and for 15 minutes.

6)      In a pan heat light frying oil to temperature.

7)      Take a tablespoon full of the mixture and drop into the pan.

8)      It takes around 1-2 minutes to fry and obtain a golden colour and flip it over to fry the other side.

9)      When ready place on a place with kitchen towel so that the excess oil has been withdrawn from the Crab Meat Fritter.

10)  When frying is complete, you can plate up and serve with a tartare sauce or mayonnaise and salad.
