Thai Style Shrimp Patties Recipe

If tuna fish patties and crab cakes are your favorite appetizers at the restaurant, but you are concerned about the kind of flour used to bind the goodness altogether, as well as the quality of the cooking oil, you must try this amazing Paleo alternative at home! It is lightly reminiscent of the sea and of tropical beaches, yet you can easily gather the ingredients wherever you are in the world.

Thai Style Shrimp Patties

A note of caution: shrimp is a member of the shellfish family, and if you are allergic in any way, please refrain. If you just happen to love fish of all kinds, then feel free to dig in and eat as many shrimp patties as you wish.

Shrimp is undoubtedly rich in selenium and B12, phosphorus and choline, as well as powerful antioxidants that help fight free radicals, which are ever so important as we age. Food should always make us feel good and look great, so make a conscious effort to choose healthy options with every bite.

Dip those Thai shrimp patties into a simple homemade Paleo mayonnaise, adding spices such as mustard, red pepper flakes, and chipotle chili powder to give it an extra kick. Or opt for an even spicier Sriracha Sauce to make sure you have covered all degrees of hotness.

You can even follow this recipe for a well-balanced spicy mayo if you wish. We suggest adding a generous bowl of raw leafy greens on the side, so you can alternate the best bites; it makes for a great salad combo too!
