Melissa's notes for this recipe:
My family and friends loves it and when we have fish fry and I make some shrimp, crab and lobster cakes. It is so easy to fix it. They are so delicious and tasty.

I have had a lot of crab cakes and tuna croquettes in my life, but had never thought about chopping up shrimp and using that in a shrimp cake. I love the crunchiness that the panko gives to this dish! If you want to kick the heat up a notch, add cayenne pepper or even chopped jalapenos. This is a super easy and delicious dish to try at your next dinner!


Coarsely chop shrimp. In a large bowl combine shrimp, egg, green onion, ginger, mustard, cilantro, hot pepper sauce, sweet chili sauce, salt, and pepper. Add 1 cup panko to the bowl and combine using your hands. Form mixture into twelve 3-inch-diameter cakes.

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, fry cakes until cooked through and golden brown on both sides, adding more oil to skillet as needed, about 6 minutes.
