If you’re a fan of crab cakes, you’ve got to try these Thai-flavored shrimp cakes. The sweet, salty taste of shrimp really shines through when seasoned with the classic Thai trifecta of flavor: fish sauce, lime juice, and chili sauce.
To ensure even cooking and cakes that hold together well, be sure to take an extra minute to finely dice all the veggies. To turn any leftovers into lunch, serve shrimp cakes on a toasted whole-wheat English muffin with a smear of Sriracha mayo, lettuce, and tomato.
How to Make It
Combine shrimp, 2/3 cup panko, bell pepper, onion, cilantro, lime juice, fish sauce, chili sauce, eggs, and garlic in a medium bowl. Shape mixture into 8 patties, and dredge patties in remaining 2/3 cup panko.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add 4 shrimp patties to skillet, and cook until crispy and well browned, about 4 minutes per side. Repeat procedure with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and remaining 4 shrimp patties.
