Delaware Crab Puffs

What exactly are these? I have seen them described as battered or breaded and fried crab cakes but also as a choux style dough (like a cream puff) with crab inside.

What are they supposed to be? And where can I find the best ones?

Thank you!

    I've lived in Delaware for 13 years and never heard of these, certainly never eaten anything like choux pastry with crab inside. A Google search brings up just two recipes that basically appear to be deep-fried crab fritters. You can get a dish like that at Crabby Dick's in Delaware City and Rehoboth (where they are delightfully called "Crabby's Balls").

      Also Medding & Son has them. On Rte 1 south of Frederica, with the huge Aircraft Carrier prop out front. that's the crab balls, not the choux pastry, which sounds wonderful btw.
