Basil Seafood Patty

This basil seafood patty recipe was inspired by a magazine recipe I read, Basil Shrimp Cake. But I added a bit more basil since I barely tasted the basil in the original recipe and substituted half of the shrimp for crabstick since I didn’t have enough shrimp at home. This is an excellent appetizer.

  • 1 cup shrimp deveined, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup crabstick chopped finely
  • ½ cup onions chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 3 slices bread torn to pieces
  • 3-4 tablespoons basil chopped
  • 2 tablespoons yellow bell pepper cubed
  • 1 medium egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • ½-1 cup breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 medium egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • ½ medium lemon zest


  • Mix shrimp, crabstick, onions, garlic, fish sauce, bread, basil, bell pepper and flour in a bowl. Add about half the egg. The mixture should not be too soggy, or it will be hard to form. If the mix is already wet enough, don’t add the remaining egg.
  • Mix and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare three separate bowls for the breadcrumbs, flour and egg (if the previous egg was not used completely, you could use that remaining egg here).
  • Take out the batter from the refrigerator. Using a spoon, scoop a small portion into your hands and shape it into a small ball. Press down lightly, so it forms into a patty shape.
  • Dredge this batter with flour, dip into the egg (make sure that the patty is completely covered) then coat with bread crumbs. Set aside.
  • Repeat the process for the remaining batter.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Deep fry patties.
  • Prepare the sauce. Mix the chilli sauce, mayonnaise, salt, black pepper and lemon zest. You c88an squeeze the lemon over the sauce a little bit to give a hint of lemon taste.
  • Serve hot.
