Home Run Recipe! I try several recipes a month and although most of them are good, this one was over the top with the combinations of flavors. Don't worry about getting unsweetened coconut. The sweetened works great. I couldn't find the unsweetened here where I live. My husband is a sauce guy and brought out a couple options. He said the flavors were so great that it didn't need sauce. It would just mask the great taste. He now likes these better than crab cakes. I chopped mine in the processor as well which made them hold together just fine. Also, I did use a little more oil to get a better crust on the other side when flipped.
Thai Shrimp Cakes
Dried coconut, fresh ginger, fish sauce, and a couple of dashes of Sriracha lend Asian flavor to Thai Shrimp Cakes.
