directions

  • Preheat an oven to 200°F.
  • Make the salsa by stirring together the bell pepper, corn, green onion, cilantro, salt and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Set aside.
  • Roughly chop the prawns into 1/4-inch pieces. In a large bowl, mix together the hash browns, chopped prawns, egg, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper.
  • Heat a large nonstick frying pan over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is shimmering, use a 1/2-cup measuring cup to scoop the potato mixture into the pan to make 4 patties. Use the measuring cup to press down on the patties so that they are about 1/2-inch in thickness. Cook the patties for 3 minutes or until browned on the bottom. Flip the patties over and cook another 3-4 minutes, until cooked through. Transfer the patties to a plate and keep warm in the oven while you repeat with the remaining mixture.
  • To serve, place 2 patties on each serving plate. Top each patty with salsa and serve immediately.

    I am always on the look out for appetizers that are delicious, easy to make, and unexpectedly different. I don't have too many in my repetoire that fulfill all three of my criteria. Lemony Shrimp and Potato Cakes with Tricolor Salsa does. I made them in bite size portions and they were the first platter that disappeared.

    Lemony potato cake goodness! I made them small for appetizers and added a little spice and they were delicious.

    This was a real hit at my book club meeting! All my friends seemed to love all the flavors and it is such a beautiful dish. I was also surprised how easy it was to make as well.

    Love this recipe! The perfect balance of light and bright flavors - and the potatoes bring just the right amount of heartiness to the dish. Perfect as an appetizer (you could make them smaller for bite sized) as a side dish, or as a main course. Will definitely make these again.
