    Made them by the recipe and they were very tasty morsels….I think these would be good in a toasted hamburger bun with either some tartar sauce, crab sauce or mayo and topped with some lettuce. That’s what I will be doing next time. Thanks, dave

      Hello Dave, we’re glad you enjoyed them! Thanks for your suggestions, we’ll definitely try it in a burger topped with tartar sauce too. Yum!
