Seafood Patties

6 Mar

seafood patties

 

INGREDIENTS

6 slices bacon, diced
8 oz cooked shrimp
4 oz cooked crab meat
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp finely diced onion

DIRECTIONS

Cook the chopped bacon in a skillet over medium high heat.
Set aside and reserve the pan with bacon and drippings.
Combine remaining ingredients in a medium sized bowl. I used an emersion blender to really puree the shrimp. You could also use a food processor or even a fork to mash it up.
Add in the bacon. Form into 4 patties. Cook in the pan with the bacon drippings. About 3 minutes on each side, on medium high heat, until nicely browned. The patties are a bit delicate so take care when flipping them.
Serve with tartar sauce.

Makes 4 patties
