Deep-fried crabmeat Ingredients: Recipes vary, but most include cooked crab or imitation crabmeat, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, seasonings, and oil for frying. Fat content:Crab is relatively low-fat fare, but many recipes are heavy on butter and mayonnaise. One small puff can have anywhere from 3 grams of fat to 8 grams of fat, and richer recipes can pack as many as 20 grams of fat per serving. The "First State" is known for a deep-fried pastry appetizer stuffed with crabmeat and cheese. It's very similar to Chinese crab Rangoon. But if this is an appetizer how big is the main dish?
