Shrimp Cakes

These were surprisingly amazing.  I was in line to buy shrimp from a truck, and the woman behind me said that this is her absolute favorite way to have shrimp.  I have done some grinding of shrimp to make shu mei, but never to make a shrimp version of crab cakes.  These are fabulous, fast, and much more economical that lump crab.

Old Bay Mayonnaise:
  • Hot Sauce


For the shrimp cakes: Coarsely chop half of the shrimp. Put the remaining shrimp in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Combine both shrimp in a large bowl with the breadcrumbs, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, pepper, scallions and egg and mix. Refrigerate for 10 minutes, and then form into 4 patties. Refrigerate 10 more minutes.
Heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the shrimp cakes, about 3 minutes per side.
For the Old Bay mayo: Combine the mayonnaise, hot sauce to taste,  and Old Bay to taste in a small bowl.
