Jalapeño Shrimp Cakes

These shrimp cakes are light and delicious, made with jalapenos, scallions, and cilantro then topped with a little fresh lime juice and a few slices of avocado. Serve this over a bed of greens for a quick, light summer meal.

It’s really starting to feel like summer around here, temperatures are expected to hit 90 today. I can actually smell summer in the air, which gets me sooo excited!! After a long weekend of going to BBQ’s and too many glasses of sangria, this week I am keeping it low carb and light. I love shrimp, it’s naturally lean and cooks in minutes, which makes it perfect for a quick weeknight meal.

I’ve attempted shrimp cakes in the past, but always had issues with them holding together well so this time I decided to pulse the raw shrimp in the food processor and that worked out perfect. I left some of the seeds from the jalapeno to give it a little heat but you can leave them out if you don’t like spicy food. My plan was to grill them, but the patties were a bit delicate and I decided to saute them on the pan instead which worked out perfect. Topped with fresh lime juice and a few thin slices of avocado on top, this was flavorful and light.

And by the way, don’t miss out on a chance to win a fantastic Blendtec Blender (2 winners) with my Countdown To Summer Pin-It-To-Win-It Contest[1] happening right now!
