Zucchini And Shrimp Cakes


Looking for a different side dish to go with dinner, try my zucchini and shrimp cakes.  Since I have been on a low carb diet I look for ways to make different recipes low carb.  If you use almond flour this recipe is perfect.  If you are not looking at keeping your carbs low just use regular flour.

2 medium zucchini finely chopped
1/2 lb shrimp peeled and chopped
1 cup flour or almond flour (if doing low carb)
2 eggs
2 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 medium onion chopped
vegetable oil
Chop zucchini into very small pieces and place in colinder.  Sprinkle zucchini with koser or sea salt and let sit for 20 minutes.  This will draw the water out of the zucchini.  While the zucchini is getting happy, in mixing bowl whisk egg and blend in flour, garlic, shrimp, and onion.   After zucchini is ready squeeze any remaining water out with a paper towel.  Add zucchini to mixing bowl.  In frying pan heat with vegetable oil until hot enough to fry.  With a large spoon place mixture into pan and push flat with a spachula.  Fry until both sides are golden brown.  These are very good with some cocktail sauce, Cheers !!!
