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.

We have had a lot of crab cakes and tuna croquettes in our lives, but had never thought about chopping up shrimp and using that in a shrimp cake. We 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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
