I really enjoyed these, easily made and really delicious!!! You should have a good non-stick pan, and I made some small, some big --- I liked them either way!!! the dipping sauce is very nice, I wouldnt make it hotter because you'll lose the lovely flavour fo the shrimp cakes. We enjoyed these for dinner, with rice, but they'd make a lovely snack-tray offering! Thanks, Lynn, very nice recipe, made for PRMR tag game.
