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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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!

shrimp, peeled and deveined
large egg
green onion, sliced
1/2 Tbsp

1 Tbsp

1 Tbsp

1/2 tsp
pinch of ground black pepper

These shrimp cakes are so darned good. Mine never make it to the table because everyone that walks by them has to 'try' one. I think these are way better than any crab cake I have ever had. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!!!

I exchanged cut up cod for shrimp due to shellfish allergy.
