Food in Process: shrimp cake

My first impression of the name 'crab cake' was like an awkward: "okay..". 
Because a cake is in my mind sweet, fluffy and soft and I wasn't sure
if crab or any seafood would fit in. But then I've learned that the word
cake can be translate to a patty and suddenly the name sounds
more inviting and tasty...

Instead of using crab, I'm showing you guys today how to make a 
shrimp cake! With my favorite Asian mushroom 'shii-take'. 
Its really easy, and in my opinion a good fingerfood dish as well! 

Da recipe: 200 gram shrimps, 30 gram ready-made shii-take (4 medium), 1 slice finely chipped ginger, salt & pepper, parsley, 1 egg (whisked), any cooking oil, 2 cloves of garlic

Pat-dry shrimp. 

Taste good with sweet chilli sauce. Any sauce of desire is of course okay!

Da steps:
  1. Get your wooden cutting board ready and butcher knife ready and chop the shrimps and soft shii-take until finely minced. Add egg, pepper, salt, parsley, ginger and mix well. 
  2. Heat up a frying-pan with oil, on medium-low heat. Saute the garlic but do not let it burn. 
  3. Make a meatball of the minced mixture and place it carefully in the grillpan. Flatten it by pressing it with a wooden spatula. 
  4. Grill 1-1,5 minute on each side. 
  5. Serve it with your favorite sauce and you are done! 
Good luck!

  6. Dit ziet er zo professioneel uit! En inderdaad,de naam zag er niet zo aantrekkelijk uit, maar als ik de foto's bekijk, krijg ik spontaan honger! Tof dat je de krab vervangen hebt door scampi's!! Ik ben dol op scampi's! :)
