Shrimp and Sweet Corn Cakes

Oh my heck.  Oh my HECK.  OH…MY…HECK! Please, please – I implore you:  get in your car right now.  Or on your banana seat bicycle, electric motor scooter, or roller skates, and make a beeline for your nearest Sendik’s seafood department — especially if you’re hungry and you love shrimp, sweet corn, and basil….these outstanding shrimp cakes are on sale this week, and I can promise you:  they will knock your flipflops off!

(How’s that song go?  ” You’ll like em, you’ll love ‘em, you’ll want some more OF ‘em….”)

I have a blast making shrimp cakes from scratch, really I do.  But believe me when I say that the ones they’re featuring this week taste exactly like my favorite recipe, and I didn’t even have to dirty up my food processor to enjoy them tonight!  With a simple green salad and a box of rice pilaf – what a perfect and easy summer dinner!

Just sauté the cakes in a bit of neutral cooking oil (three minutes the first side, two on the second), and drain them on a paper towel.  Place them on a pretty platter along with the delicious basil jalapeno dipping sauce, then stand back and watch them disappear!

They’re priced at a very reasonable $9.99 per pound, which will get you 5 nice sized cakes.   The DamFam is duking it out over the leftovers even as we speak, and trust me — it ain’t pretty.  I’ll meet you at the seafood counter, I’m goin’ back for more.  :-)

And by the way, if they look familiar, it’s ’cause you saw ‘em here first! )  :-)
