Shrimp Fritters with Blackberry Dipping Sauce

I feel like most of the pink food I’ve been making has been sweet. I wanted to make something savory for a change. These shrimp fritters were AMAZING. They had a great shrimp and garlic flavor without being overly greasy or heavy.

I really enjoyed the Blackberry Dipping Sauce. I loved how the sweetness countered the savory flavors of the fritters. However, Hubby thought the texture was kind of weird. Next time I make this, I’ll definitely puree the dipping sauce so that it has a smooth texture to appease Hubby’s taste buds.

Ingredients:

For the Shrimp Fritters:
1/2 pound shrimp, peeled, deveined and finely chopped
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper
Canola oil

For the Blackberry Dipping Sauce:
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
5-6 fresh blackberries

Directions:

To make the Shrimp Fritters:
In a large bowl mix the shrimp, green onions, garlic, breadcrumbs and egg until well combined. Season with salt and a pinch of pepper.

Coat the bottom of a large skillet with oil and heat over medium-low heat. Use a tablespoon or cookie scoop to form small balls of the shrimp mixture, then pat them gently to form cakes. Carefully lower the cakes into the oil and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until golden and the shrimp have cooked through. Drain on towels.

To make the Blackberry Dipping Sauce:
In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and blackberries, smashing the blackberries with a fork. Serve with the shrimp cakes.

    I’ve had fruit hand pies on my to-bake list as well. I haven’t spotted a strawberry version until now, and these look very tasty! 9 1/2 cups of flour for the dough? Wow!

    Sherry – Alton Brown gives all his recipes in ounces. So as the recipe states, it’s 9 1/2 ounces of flour, which is about 2 cups.
