Ingredients

Aromatic, For Vegetarians

  • 100 gr crab meat
  • 200 gr small prawns, thawed
  • 200 gr calamari
  • 150 gr octopus (tentacle)
  • 2 eggs
  • 100-150 gr breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp ouzo
  • 1 tbsp Carino fish Seasoning
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • Zest from ½ lemon
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 200 gr Greek yogurt
  • Juice and zest from ½ lemon
  • 2 tbsp caper
  • 1 tsp dried parsley Sunspices

Method

  1. We put the crab meat, the prawns, the calamari and the octopus (which we have cut into pieces) in a food processor. We puree the mixture. We can either puree them completely or leave very small pieces. In a large bowl, we put the pureed seafood, the eggs, 100 gr breadcrumbs, ouzo, the Carino fish seasoning, the chopped spring onions and the lemon zest. We mix very well. We cover the bowl with a cling film and put it in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl we put the yogurt and we add the lemon zest and juice, the caper and the parsley. We mix and leave it aside.
  3. We take the bowl with the seafood out of the fridge and we shape balls which we coat with breadcrumbs. We heat plenty of olive oil in a large pot and we fry the seafood balls in batches, until golden. We drain them on a paper towel and serve them on a plate with the yogurt sauce.
