Need advice on Shrimp Cakes

I am planning on making the Shrimp and Sweet Potato cakes from epi this Saturday as appetizers but will do an asian version instead of using Latin spice. Recipe link below.

I wondered if I could do the prep in advance - form the cakes Thursday and freeze, then cook Saturday. If frozen, do I need to thaw before browning or can I fry straight from the freezer? Would appreciate any recommendations. Thanks!

    don't thaw before you fry them, do it straight from the freezer.

        Another time we made a whole bunch of tiny crab cakes that we didn't finish. I ended up putting leftovers in the toaster oven, it's not as crunchy, but it's tasty still. Just another way to go.
