If you are craving Asian shrimp cakes, then this is the perfect recipe for you to make. These shrimp cakes are so versatile, you can add in your favorite ingredients , and they will still come out tasting delicious. Forget about ordering takeout again! I know you are going to love them!
Shrimp is incredibly tasty, is low calorie, low fat and chock full of protein, so it’s no wonder that so many of us love these crunchy crustaceans. There are also so many different ways to prepare shrimp, you really cannot run out of new ideas! A major favorite of mine is a platter of chunky shrimp cakes that are great to take to a party or serve alongside other Asian delicacies.
This particular recipe for shrimp cakes is so fresh for a Springtime dinner party. It goes very well alongside nearly any dish. Shrimp cakes are light enough to add protein to an otherwise vegetarian meal but without being overly filling. The other nice thing about serving a vegetarian entrée with shrimp cakes is being able to offer food for pescetarians and vegetarians without anyone feeling deprived.
A Do-able Dish for New Cooks
Shrimp is available year-round since it is easy to get fresh most places and thaws beautifully if you keep some frozen on-hand to make these shrimp cakes on the fly. Shrimp is not too difficult to make even for a beginner cook as it comes out quite succulent without having to fuss over it much. This is especially true when you go with a dish requiring chopped shrimp since minor flaws disappear during preparation.
Keeping Things a Little Healthier
If you are fairly new to Asian cooking or to seafood, you can follow these steps and turn out a fabulous meal to delight any seafood fan. Shrimp is one of the most-consumed seafood dishes in the United States. Fried shrimp is probably one of the more popular cooking methods for Americans, but deep-frying shrimp really adds to the fat and you taste the breading more than the savory shrimp flavor. Even though my recipe does use a little pan frying for a tasty cake, it’s much lighter than deep frying.
