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.

Pan-Fried Shrimp With Creole Mayonnaise

These fried shrimp are so yummy!  They remind me of some I’ve had at Carabba’s.  They have an Italian flavor that would also be yummy on Shrimp Parmesan as well.
