Cheesy Shrimp Cakes Recipe with  Lemon Aioli Sauce


Hey everyone. It’s Natasha of Natashaskitchen.com and today we’re making
cheesy shrimp cakes. This is the best way
to make a pound of shrimp go a long way
and do not skip that lemon aioli sauce,
it makes these irresistible delicious
and they always disappear fast.
We’ll start with 1 pound of large shrimp
that have been peeled deveined and
patted dry with paper towels. Chop your
shrimp into small pea-sized pieces, the
finer you chop them, the easier they’ll
hold together as shrimp cakes. Transfer
your chopped shrimp meat to a large
mixing bowl and add 1 and 1/2 cups or 4
ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese, 1
large egg, 1/4 cup of mayo and 2
tablespoons of fresh parsley. Season
with half a teaspoon of salt and 1/8 of
a teaspoon of black pepper, then stir it
all together and finally add 1/4 cup of
all-purpose flour and you can substitute
with gluten-free flour if you prefer.
Stir until creamy and well combined.
We’re ready to sautee. Place a large
non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1Tbsp
of olive oil. Once the oil is
hot, add the batter, 1 heaping Tbsp
at a time or use a level ice cream scoop
and flatten out the tops of the fritters
as you go so they’re about half an inch
thick patties. Saute for 3 minutes on
each side or until they’re golden brown
at the edges and fully cooked through.
Once they’re done, transfer them to a
serving platter and cook the remaining
shrimp cakes, adding more oil as needed.
Oh I am excited! Alright now, for the next
step – the sauce. The lemon aioli is
everything so do not skip it. So we’re
gonna whip that up real quick and all
you need is 1/2 a cup of mayo. So we’re
gonna get that into a small bowl. And a
tip that I learned is – if you want any
kind of mayo based sauce to be super
creamy, mix it before you add anything
else into it, that way you get rid of any
lumps and it becomes super smooth. All
right, now we are going to zest a lemon
and we’ll need about a teaspoon of lemon
zest and make sure you’re just getting
the yellow part and not the white,
because the white can make your sauces
taste a little bitter but all the good
flavors in that yellow peel. Okay, that
looks good. Now two tablespoons of fresh
lemon juice. The sauce is so simple but
totally delicious. Okay, and I’m gonna use
my favorite measuring spoons. If you
don’t have a set of these –
they are awesome! They stack so that you
can store them easily and conveniently
and they don’t get lost which is a
frequent problem in my kitchen and I’ll
post a link to these in the description
below. I love the fresh lemon in there.
Okay, and then one clove of garlic and
that’s a large clove that I’ve pressed.
And then just stir it up. Alright, just
until it’s creamy and smooth and then
serve it up with these finger-licking
good shrimp cakes.
Everybody loves the sauce! I’m telling
you – don’t skip it! Alright, it is time for
the taste test, the moment I’m always
waiting for. Okay, just fast-forward to
this part every time. All right and I
want you to look at what’s inside of
these. Oh YUM! Okay, these are still a
little bit hot, okay and then right into
that sauce because it’s so good.
These are so good! Wow! Loaded with cheese
and so much flavor this is seriously one
of my favorite ways to make a pound of
shrimp go a long way. These are so good
and you can really taste a little fresh
pop of parsley in there. Wow! If you enjoyed

    I used this recipe without shrimp but chopped zucchini, subbed cheddar for mozz. Changed the dip to sour cream instead of mayo, added dill, salt and pepper. Covered the pan to get a more thorough cook of patties. Had to go with what I had on hand. Lovely recipe!

    More often than not I cook for my wife. But I needed something special for her as we are going through a trying time after a miscarriage. Dinner was several hours ago and she is still talking about these Shrimp Cakes and the sauce. I left her the rest of them to take to work tomorrow. Thank you for the amazing recipe Madam Natasha #Subscribed!

    These are amazing!

    I mixed it up a little:
    Added finely diced fresh jalapeño to the batter for a slight little kick (rinse them under water first before adding otherwise may be too hot for you)

    Added some finely diced spring onion to the batter. Just a little bit

    Used a powdered California style garlic mix instead of fresh

    I follow KETO so used coconut flour. Gave them a tad bit tropical/nutty flair!

    Added a bit of curry powder to the aioli and extra lemon zest. Yum!

    Also— made the sauce and the batter an hour or so early, refrigerate both before sautéing so that the flavours can merge.

    Cheers from Bermuda!
    Great Channel Natasha 😘

    I was looking for a seafood cake that was a bit different and was mostly shrimp because I had to use some up. These were excellent with the aioli! Perfect cheat meal indulgence. So much better than a basic seafood cake that I was searching for at the time. Also I used some gluten free flour and it was amazing! So great to see a channel offer two options like this. Thanks a lot!
