Shrimp Cakes with Lime Cilantro Aioli

With Valentines Day fast approaching, Rock Recipes has again teamed up with CBC Newfoundland and Labrador, this time to create a 3 course meal for you and your sweetheart. The recipes and recipe videos will roll out once a week leading to the big day in February.

Today we start with this delicious appetizer course inspired by Maryland crab cakes which we make here on Rock Recipes as snow crab cakes. I’ve chosen shrimp to make the crispy cakes this time, in a bit of a different and slightly more economical twist.

They are delicious served over a simple green salad where the homemade cilantro lime aioli serves not only as a tasty accompaniment to the shrimp cakes but as a dressing for the salad as well. You can make the shrimp cake mixture earlier in the day, then just roll them in the crumb mixture and take a few minutes to fry them on the night of your dinner.

Instructions

To prepare the Shrimp Cakes

  1. Toss together the shrimp meat with the 1/2 cup cracker crumbs, mayonnaise, lime zest, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, hot sauce, egg and cilantro.

  2. Form into 6 balls by hand. Roll in the additional cracker crumb/panko crumb mixture.

  3. Heat about a half inch of canola oil in a skillet or sate pan over medium-low heat. You want these to fry gently; they will burn quickly if the oil is too hot.

  4. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

To prepare the Lime Cilantro Aioli

  1. Add the garlic, mustard, egg yolk, lime zest, salt, pepper and lime juice to a blender. Turn on the blender at medium to medium high speed.

  2. Pour in the olive oil very slowly in a thin, continuous stream until the aioli thickens. Pulse in the chopped cilantro at the end. Serve over the shrimp cakes.
