- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup hot chili salsa

Line baking sheet with parchment. Combine crab, 1 cup green onions and avocado in large bowl. Mix eggs, salsa and salt; add to crab. Mix in bread crumbs. Form mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place on prepared sheet. Cover with plastic and refrigerate 3 hours. Can be prepared ahead and frozen. Do not thaw before cooking.
Preheat oven to lowest setting. Line another baking sheet with paper towels. Pour oil into large skillet to depth of 3 inches. Heat to 350F. Dust fritters with flour. Carefully add to oil in batches (do not overcrowd) and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side for refrigerated fritters and about 3 minutes for frozen fritters. Drain on paper towels. Transfer to prepared sheet and keep warm in oven until all are cooked. Garnish with green onion slivers and serve immediately.
