I can't afford Crab at today's prices, but I can buy frozen raw shrimp meat cheaply. I have used salmon instead of shrimp, and it is just as good.
Pulse shrimp in food processor a few times to break them up (or chop them by hand, you want them finely chopped.) Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse a few more times until blended or mix by hand. Form into 6-8 paddies about an inch thick. These can be frozen now for later use or refrigerated for use the next day.
To cook, put in pan over medium heat with a little oil in the bottom. Turn after browned on one side 3-4 minutes and finish the other side. Serve on a bun or alone.
I like to serve with a flavored mayo. 1 cup of mayo with some finely chopped sun dried tomatoes or some mustard or dill. Let your imagination go wild, use whatever herb or flavoring would go well with what you are serving.
Yum! Cannot wait to try this out, Thanks for sharing.
These sound great. Can't wait to try the little ones as an appetizer. Especially like the idea of serving different mayos for dipping. Thanks for sharing.
I make what I call salmon nuggets for my family. I use canned salmon, smash all the bones in (they are so soft, you don't even notice them, and the extra calcium is good for you) and mix like crab cakes. Canned salmon is way cheaper on sale than crab or shrimp, plus nothing to peel. I've paid $1.99 for a large 15 oz can at Walgreens, and it feeds my family of four with leftovers. I shape and brown them on both sides, and we usually eat them with ketchup or tartar sauce. I think they'd make great burgers too, but I haven't tried that yet.
When you say bread crumbs are you talking like cubed bread ot the fine bread crumbs you can buy?
Are we talking cubed bread or fine crumbs that you can buy
