  • Heat a skillet with oil on a medium heat and place 2 tablespoons of shrimp cakes mixture into the hot skillet.
  • Using back of a spoon spread the mixture slightly to create the round shape. These shrimp cakes only take a few minutes to cook (about 2-3 minutes), so keeping track of the order they go in the pan means you know which ones to turn first.
