Deep fried savory Crab and Bacon Beignets with Harissa sauce make a perfect appetizer!
I’m teaming up with Anolon for the month of October, November and December of 2015 to create recipes for their site! Follow their hashtag #HolidayHosting for more recipes and fun! A special thanks to Anolon for sponsoring this post. I was compensated for developing the recipe on their site as well as this post and all Anolon products were provided by them. However all opinions above are totally my own and are not endorsed by Anolon.
Though my ethnic heritage is Taiwanese-American, I’m a Midwest boy at heart. I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and that means I’ve got a weakness for deep-fried anything. So when I had an opportunity to develop a recipe for savory crab and bacon beignets, I was a pretty happy camper. Turns out, my partner AJ was pretty happy too, as he kept on reaching for more and more of these fried balls of savory salty deliciousness. The harissa aioli dipping sauce just brings the beignets to a new level but don’t be scared by it. It’s fairly easy to make, especially with the store-bought harissa.
