  • 1 cup cooked crab meat
  • 1 cup chopped, cooked shrimp
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon "For J's" Hawaiian Chili Pepper Sea Salt

  1. Put Tofu into a colander and place colander into a bowl and cover, then into the refrigerator for a few hours or over night to drain.
  2. Thinly slice the mushrooms, then sauté them in butter and garlic to taste. Cool and drain off liquid.
  3. Cook peeled shrimp in butter, remove once cooked and chop to desired size.
  4. Make sure you drain as much liquid from the ingredients so that your patties come out crispy.

  7. *Tip: For perfectly rounded patties, use a ice cream scooper with a ratchet mechanism that releases even scoops
