Shrimp Cakes

Tonight the kids went to dinner with their dad, so I took that opportunity to make myself something only I would eat (in this house): SHRIMP CAKES!

They were so good, and a different texture than crab cakes.  Next time I’m going to make them in tiny bite size nuggets for an appetizer.
