This recipe is amazing and is not an original of mine. It is from here. Loved these. These work great as an appetizer or as your protein with a salad for a meal. Yum.
1 lb Large Raw Shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 oz. Mozzarella Cheese (about 1 and 1/2 cups shredded)
1 Large Egg
1/4 Cup Mayonaise
2 Tablespoons Parsley
1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons Oil (to cook in)
Lemon Aioli Sauce:
1/2 Cup Mayo
1 Teaspoon Lemon Zest
2 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Garlic Clove, pressed or finely minced
Step 1: Pat dry shrimp with paper towels then dice into pea-sized pieces.
Step 2: Transfer chopped shrimp to a large mixing bowl. Add 4 oz shredded mozzarella, 1 egg, 1/4 cup mayo, 2 Tbsp parsley, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper. Stir together then add 1/4 cup flour and mix until batter is creamy and well combined.
Step 3: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add 1 heaping Tablespoon at a time (or a level ice cream scoop) and flatten out the tops of your fritters as you go so they are about 1/2" thick patties. Saute about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown on the edges and cooked through.
How to Make Lemon Aioli Sauce:
