I followed the recipe exactly as written and used really good shrimp (fresh, wild caught) and the cakes were totally blah with no flavor outside that of the shrimp. The concept is good, though, so I might try again, but add either some dill or Old Bay to liven it up. This was the second time I was fooled by the SL staff into making a paprika mayo sauce. Again, followed sauce recipe exactly, even buying a brand new bottle of smoked paprika, and it was a snoozer. I think a remoulade sauce would be good with this and if I attempt this again, that's what I'd use.
