Crab cakes are one of those things where I have absolutely zero self-control. I cannot get enough of them. These crab cakes with shrimp are no exception, that’s for sure. The addition of chopped shrimp to the Cajun-flavor-packed crab mixture really makes for a different twist on a crab-only cake. I found myself loving these even more than ‘just’ crab cakes. It did not surprise me when my wife proclaimed these to be the best things we’ve made.

Perfect Heat

The cakes do have a bit of a spiciness to them, thanks to a jalapeno pepper. I found them to be fantastic. They’re not overly spicy, not at all. Every bite is a fantastic mix of flavors that I just hoped would never end.

I recommend that you peel your celery first. For this and any other dish that calls for celery. It only takes a second and it makes your celery much more tender.

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.

A chilled Creole remoulade sauce was perfect for dipping these crab cakes. You can also make appetizer-sized cakes, but I’d make extra because they’re going to go fast.
