Enjoy this wonderful krokechi recipe, which is a Dutch version of fish croquettes
Krokechis are most popular in Aruba, with its predominantly Dutch influence. Although Aruba falls within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, it is independent from the group of islands referred to as the Netherlands Antilles.
Shrimp is commonly used in this recipe, but you can also substitute any other type of meat. Krokechis are cylindrical in shape and served at lunch or as snacks. A smaller, rounded version - called bitterbal - is served regularly in bars and after work.
-Dissolve 2 tablespoons in ¼ cup of warmed milk
-Heat butter and
slowly add flour to create a roux. Add warmed milk and broth slowly
to create a thick sauce.
Add the following
ingredients to the sauce. Let it begin to cool.
Add 1 cup finely
minced, cooked shrimp or crabmeat.
Remove the mixture from refrigerator and roll into cylinders - not too thick around or the insides will be too runny. You should get approximately 8 cylinders, depending on size.
Pre-heat oil to highest setting.
Roll each cylinder
in egg wash, then in crumbs, and again in egg.
Be cautious when
eating this fried delicacy. It can be steamy hot inside - enough to
burn your mouth.
