How to make these LC? Crawfish Beignets
I would love to make these, but not sure which flour alternative would work best. Other than that, seems fairly lowcarb. I could use Walden Farms ketchup. I think this would satisfy my cravings for lots of things, including hushpuppies and crabcakes.

Recipe type: Appetizer
1 egg, beaten
1 pound chopped cooked crawfish tail meat or shrimp
4 green onions, chopped

Oil for deep-fat frying

In a large bowl, combine the egg, crawfish, onions, butter, salt and cayenne. Stir in flour until blended.

Those sound fantastic! Just sub in one of Jennifer's bak mixes for the flour; and make some LC ketchup for the regular ketchup and it should work for you. I'd like to try these!
