This recipe was from my friend, Michelle, and it was really good! Similar to a crabcake but with a distinct shrimp taste and much lower cost. Tasty!
Spicy Shrimp Cakes
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1 garlic clove minced
1/4 thinly sliced green onions
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1.5 teaspoons hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/4 finely chopped cilantro
3/4 panko divided
Place shrimp in food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients, up until the panko, into the food processor and pulse until well mixed. Remove from processor and mix in half of the panko.
Divide shrimp mixture into 10 equal portions, forming patties. Dredge both sides in remaining panko. Chill at least one hour.
Heat pan over medium high heat and coat with cooking spray. Cook cakes 4 minutes on each side or until browned.
