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.

    Hi Jen, by any chance do you remember about how many strawberries you used for the recipe and also for filling? I have maybe 10-15 strawberries at home that need to be used asap and wondered if that was enough?

    KV – Sorry I don’t. We had a big thing of strawberries in the fridge that Hubby had cut up for us to snack on. I would say it was less than a pint, but pretty close to a pint? Not really sure. Sorry I can’t be more help.

    I’ve heard that strawberry cake doesn’t end up being that sweet, but maybe the addition of fresh strawberries on top changes things. I’m a huge strawberry fan, so I’m anxious to try this.

    Cupcake Activist – I could definitely see that the batter itself might not be that sweet. I thought they were great with the additional strawberries added in.

    This looks divine. I made the Sky High strawberry cake with frozen berries and I thought it was really good, but I’d like to try again with fresh ones too! Your hubby has some very luck coworkers 🙂
