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.

    Sorry – I updated the recipe to reflect that I used dried cranberries in place of the raisins.

    Looks just delicious! I’m crazy lately about cranberries too. Talk about a versatile fruit! I just used them this evening to make a cranberry-apple conserve that served as the sauce for almond-crusted pork tenderloin. It was a big hit.

    I also wonder if you can use fresh cranberries since they are in season!

    You could definitely make this with fresh cranberries if you wanted.

    How long did you bake this if you halved it in a 8 by 8 pan? So excited to try it 🙂

    I think I started checking it at 30 minutes and left it in for about 45 based on the color of the top layer.

    Me again. It is DELICIOUS! I halved the recipe and used 1 cup of fresh cranberries, though I think I could have used more.

    Thanks so much!

    Glad to hear it Lisa! I will definitely have to try this with fresh cranberries next time I make it.
