  1. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe my friend. It was so good. Even Mr. Picky enjoyed this lovely treat. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I did add the optional hot sauce, truly spectacular. The shrimp and corn cakes with mayo was quick and easy to make. The sauce was out of this world good while the cakes were crisp and crunchy on the outside and soft, tender and flavorful on the inside. I will be making this often. Made for Think Pink 2018.
  2. 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.
