Shrimp Cakes

Shrimp Cakes

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Are you getting back into the swing of things? My recipes are back to normal now with less fancy and more everyday meals. We enjoy seafood and fresh fish (especially when my husband catches it). Unfortunately one of my favorites is not something he can catch for us. So when shrimp goes on sale at the market I like to make shrimp linguini, shrimp scampi, shrimp salad and yummy shrimp cakes. Today I am happy to share my shrimp cakes recipe with you.

shrimp cakes recipe


What You Need

1 1/2 pounds large shrimp

3 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Lemon (2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice, 2 Tsp. Lemon zest)

1/2 tsp. Ground chili powder

Pinch of salt

1/4 tsp. Black pepper

1/4 Cup flour

1/4 Cup green onions (tops and bottoms minced)

Lets Make It!  Combine shrimp the jalapeño, lemon juice and lemon zest, salt, and pepper in food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped. Pour the flour into the pie plate ( or shallow bowl). Shape the shrimp mixture into 8 patties and dredge in the flour. Heat the olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Place the shrimp patties into the oil and cook until golden brown ( about 2 -3 minutes per side.)

    Maryland Crab Cakes are my favorite, but only from a specific restaurant. I like shrimp too and these look like they’d make a nice substitute for me. Will have to give it a try.
