Shrimp Cakes

Shrimp cakes are perfect for entertaining, appetizer, or dinner meal. It is easy to make and it’s crowd-friendly, pair it with any of your favorite side dishes or eat as is. It doesn’t require too many ingredients. If you don’t like frying food you can bake it.

Shrimp is one of my seafood favorites and these shrimp cakes are not excluded, I loved it and family loved to eat it and they always love and asked for more whenever I prepare it. You could eat it as it is or pair with potatoes, and/ with salad.

For some acidity, squeeze some freshly squeezed lemon over it and transport it to another level… Yum! I had posted some shrimps recipes in the past you might want to check them out.
