Shrimp Cakes

Shrimp Cakes

I love to add shrimp to crabcakes but these patties can stand on shrimp alone. I prefer to cook my shrimp but precooked shrimp would work just as well (and faster too with less clean up)!
1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 egg
3/4 panko bread crumbs, divided
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons mayo
2 Tablespoons minced onion
2 Tablespoons minced celery
1 Tablespoon olive oil
Steam shrimp until pink and no longer clear (about 4 minutes). While shrimp steams, sauté onion and celery in oil until soft (about 2 minutes).

Dice shrimp into 1/4-inch pieces. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together shrimp, egg, seasoning, lemon juice, celery mix, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs and mayo.

Refrigerate for 10 minutes to allow breadcrumbs to absorb mixture.
Scoop mixture onto baking sheet and flatten into patties. Broil on high for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve alone or with your favorite tarter or cocktail sauce.
