Shrimp Patty Sandwiches Recipe

Quite often when we eat at a restaurant, my husband will try something and tell me that I could make it better at home. That was the case with this shrimp patty. It had very few shrimp and needed more flavor. I made some improvements and now it's one my husband's favorites.

"This recipe was tasty to eat, but I didn't like that I had to "fix" it to get it to turn out right. I used Krusteaz just add water pancake mix and after I had the patty ingredients all mixed together it looked like, well, pancake batter that had seafood in it. It was impossible to get that runny stuff to hold together in a patty form like you see in the picture, so I added just enough mix to hold it together (an extra 1/2 cup, maybe more)with my hands that had been wetted with cold water to prevent it from sticking. Once I could get patty shapes out of it, they tasted great but they may have been more like the patties the recipe creator was trying to avoid. They cooked up fast in the skillet and my family loved them, though. My kid called it a "crabby patty" because we used imitation crab for the haddock."

"My family realy liked this recipe. I have tried other shrimp patties and thought this was the best. The pancake mix gives it that extra boost of flavor it needs. Thankyou for sharing. This will be going in to my recipe box."
