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! )
