Shrimp Cakes
This recipe had so many mixed reviews, however the comments about the flavor intrigued me, so.... I decided to cut the recipe and try it on myself first. I revised it a bit. I used approx a half pound of shrimp, with a heaping Tablespoon of Mayo, a squirt of mustard, a 1/4 cup of chopped onions, 12 crackers, old bay seasoning, pepper, parsley, 2 tbsp of hot sauce, garlic powder, Tony's Seasoning. Covered the bottom of a glass pan with a thick layer of olive oil and baked at 450 for about 20 minutes. It was delicious and crispy. Yum!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
