Asian Shrimp Patties

shpatties0032

These tasty shrimp patties make a wonderful, quick lunch for 2-3 people.  We both LOVE these things served with a nice green salad.  They are suitable for all phases of Atkins and other Keto diets.

INGREDIENTS FOR SHRIMP PATTIES:

8 oz. raw, peeled shrimp
1/2 tsp. Sambal Oelek chile paste
2 cloves minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp. minced shallots or green onion
juice of 1/2 lime
3/4 tsp. dried lemon grass, ground (or 1½ tsp. fresh, finely chopped)
1/4 of a Revo Roll (Cloud Bread) crumbled  (http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/improved_revolution_rolls.html) [or any other low-carb roll on hand]

INGREDIENTS FOR DIPPING SAUCE:
1 ¾ tsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. peanut butter
2 tsp. rice vinegar
1/2 tsp. grated ginger
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 tsp. chili paste or Sriracha sauce
1 tsp. Splenda or equivalent sweetener of your choice
1 T. low sodium soy sauce

Pulse all shrimp pattie ingredients in blender or food processor until well blended. Shape into 6 small patties and brown in a lightly oiled no-stick skillet. You’ll know when they are done as they become visibly opaque.  This recipe is technically not suitable until OWL due to sauce ingredients, but the patties themselves are OK for Induction and there’s so little PB and rice vinegar in the sauce, it probably won’t cause you problems.
