 Ingredients List

  • Shrimp Cakes:
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sriracha, optional and to taste
  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons green onions, finely chopped plus more for garnishing
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (regular paprika may be substituted)
  • 1 pound fresh shrimp, cleaned and finely chopped
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Spicy Mayo:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha, or to taste
  • lemon wedges, for garnishing


Shrimp Cakes – To a large bowl, add the eggs, optional sriracha, and whisk to combine.
Add the panko, green onions, salt, pepper, lemon zest, smoked paprika, and stir to combine.
Add the shrimp and knead the mixture with your hands to evenly distribute the shrimp within the other ingredients. Form 4 large patties.
To a large skillet, add the olive oil, shrimp cakes, and cook over medium heat for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. I recommend keeping the heat at medium so the shrimp cakes don’t brown too quickly or get too dark. While they cook, make the spicy mayo.

Spicy Mayo – Add both ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine.
When shrimp cakes are done, garnish with green onions, and serve with spicy mayo and lemons.
