Crabby Patties

Filed under: Uncategorized — ruralmomof3 @ 6:29 pm

Well actually we made Shrimp Patties but somehow when you relate supper to a cartoon like SpongeBob everyone gets excited! I decided to make these because my family really enjoys tilapia. The tilapia I get from our local grocery store comes with 5 filets. There are 5 of us in the family but hubby really would prefer a couple of those yummies on his plate. Tonight I remembered that I also had a little bag of frozen tiny shrimp in the freezer and decided to do something with them to make the meal stretch a little bit further. (Fried Tilapia recipe coming soon!) Here’s what I did:

The Recipe:

1 c. tiny pre-cooked shrimp, thawed and drained (if you have more than that, go for it!)
1 egg
1/4 sleeve of saltine crackers, crushed
1 green onion, sliced (or equivalent of regular onion)
a sprinkle or 2 of dill weed
salt/pepper
2 tsp cocktail sauce (optional)

I used my food chopper to chop the little shrimp into itty bitty pieces. Then I combined all the ingredients in a bowl and left it sit for about 10 min (make it ahead and put it in the fridge until you get home would be fine too). This allows the crackers to absorb some of the moisture. Then I shaped them into little patties (mine were “slider” sized but you can make them larger) and dipped both sides in flour. Then I fried them until brown on both sides and heated through. Served with additional cocktail sauce.
