I made this recipe for a family reunion, and everyone was raving over it. Thank you so much for posting this, it is in my "Top 20 Recipes" cookbook.
This recipe was a complete disaster. When reading over the recipe it made no sense to me that you could cook the chopped shrimp first and then expect it to stay intact in a patty. Boy was I (unfortunately) right. I followed the recipe exactly and there was NO way to transfer the patties to even the flour mixture. Totally fell apart in my hands. I even let them rest in the fridge for 30 min. like I do with crab cakes because I anticipated a problem. I stood and peeled and deveined 61 shrimp and did all the other prep work and it all ended up in the trash. What a waste of my time and money. Sorry Emeril...boo!
These are the best ever. I searched all over for this recipe. It is amazing. My grandparents loved it also, which is hard to do. I recomend making the tartar suace yourself it taste really good also, and doesnt take long to make. 5 starz!
