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!

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.
