Oatmeal Shrimp Patties

March 18, 2009

I’ve been putting oatmeal in almost everything I made, from cake, cookies, meatloaf  to this patties 🙂


The reason is because I know oatmeal is healthy and I want to give something good to my family. They don’t like oatmeal in its basic form, oatmeal porridge, so I have to figure out how to hide it in food they’d eat 😀

These are what you need to make this easy cake:
500 gr shrimp
100 gr oatmeal
1 egg
1 tbsp shao xing wine or dry sherry (you need this to reduce the “shrimpy” smell :-))
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 garlic or more if you like
1 spring onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper (I added a bit of chicken powder to improve the taste)
1/2 tsp sugar

Pulse all ingredients in food processor until well blended.

Form it into patties, baked in a pan until done. You can bake them with oil or without oil.

If you want, you can also coat them with bread crumb and egg wash before bake them.
Serve warm with choice of salad.
