Total Time






Shrimp Cakes
lb uncooked shrimp, peeled (tail shells removed), deveined
tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
tablespoon fresh lime juice
teaspoon grated gingerroot
clove garlic, finely chopped
egg white
cups Progresso® panko crispy bread crumbs
tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
small jalapeño chile, seeded, finely chopped
tablespoons vegetable oil
Wasabi Mayo
cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
teaspoon wasabi paste
teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  1. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper; line serving platter with paper towels. In food processor, coarsely chop shrimp. Add 1 tablespoon soy sauce, the lime juice, gingerroot, garlic and egg white; process with on-and-off pulses until well mixed. Gradually add 1 cup of the bread crumbs, processing with pulses until mixture is well blended. Remove shrimp mixture from processor; place in medium bowl. Stir in bell pepper and chile.
  2. Divide shrimp mixture into 12 equal portions. Shape each portion into patty, 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Place remaining 1 cup bread crumbs on plate. Lightly press both sides of each patty into crumbs to coat evenly; place on cookie sheet. Refrigerate 20 minutes. Discard any remaining bread crumbs.
  3. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix wasabi mayo ingredients until well blended. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
  4. In 10-inch skillet, heat 2 to 3 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat about 2 minutes or until hot. Working in batches, cook patties in oil 8 to 12 minutes, turning once, until thoroughly cooked and golden brown. Remove patties from skillet to paper towel-lined platter; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and remaining patties. Serve with wasabi mayo.
