"SINCE pinto beans and mashed potatoes were our usual daily fare, salmon was a special treat on Sundays. We ate these cakes fast as Mama could fry them—she couldn't get them off the griddle fast enough."
Since canned shrimp was very expensive when I was growing up, this special dish always seemed like a real treat. It's still a treat today because it's delicious. Shrimp Wiggle is so satisfying, it's one-dish dinner!
This quick recipe is one I discovered 20 years ago in a fund-raiser cookbook. Since my husband is an avid fisherman, I've put it to good use over the years. The crispy potato chip coating bakes up toasty brown, and the fillets stay nice and moist. —Sharon Funfsinn, Mendota, Illinois
