Recipe by Sara 76

This recipe comes from the "Gone With The Wind Cook Book - Famous Southern Cooking Recipes". There is a note in the foreward which I love: "Gone With The Wind told of a style of living. as well as a romantic drama, A way of living, playing, and eating that thrilled us all." **The original recipe says to boil the shrimp for 15 minutes. I have changed this to 3-5, as I think 15 would be far too long!

  1. Drop fresh shrimps into boiling salted water, and cook until shells turn pink, this should only take about 3-5 minutes at the most. drain, and cover with cold water to chill.
  2. Drain again and peel and de-vein the shrimp.
  3. Put the shrimp through a food chopper.
  4. Remove the crusts from the bread; cover with boiling water; squeeze dry and crumble.
  5. Add butter and seasonings, and mix well with shrimp.
  6. Shape into flat cakes; place in greased shallow pan and bake at 180C for about 20 minutes, turning to brown both sides. Or, saute in butter, browning both sides.
