Red snapper, russet potatoes, chorizo and lump crabmeat make up these irresistible, straight-from-the-coast croquettes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine scallops and snapper in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until combined. Combine potato, dill, and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl; mash well with a potato masher or large fork. Stir in scallop mixture, chorizo, and crabmeat; stir well to combine.

Step 2

Place cornstarch, eggs, and panko in 3 separate shallow containers. Divide croquette mixture into 18 equal portions; form portions into balls. Roll each ball in cornstarch, then eggs, then panko. Set aside on a plate.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large pot to 330°. Carefully fry croquettes, in batches, 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove croquettes from oil using a slotted spoon; place on a paper towel-lined platter. Immediately sprinkle croquettes with kosher salt and black pepper as they are removed from oil. Serve with Rum Aïoli and pepper sauce, if desired.
