Recipes

Shrimp cakes with ginger and cilantro

These spicy shrimp cakes take a little time to form and fry, but it’s worth the effort. You can cut corners by buying peeled and deveined frozen shrimp, and prepare ahead by forming the cakes and refrigerating them overnight, then frying the next day.
