Good Side dish for shrimp cakes
I am making shrimp cakes in a week or so for dinner and I want to get some opinions about good side dishes for shrimp cakes?
Shrimp cakes w/ crispy frites, baked potato & accompaniments, rice pilaf or a saffron rice w/ frozen & thawed peas, over creamy grits, fresh corn risotto or my favorite, slow skillet cooked diced potatoes & onions, cooked until falling apart. Perfect w/seafood!
For a non starch side: a marinated vegetable slaw, sauteed seasonal vegetable blend or garlic sauteed green beans.
I like pepper hash with something like a shrimp/crab cake. Might be a regions thing?? Sort of a slaw. Finely shredded cabbage and bell peppers (I prefer red). The "dressing" is vinegar, salt, sugar and maybe 1-2 other things. I like to add finely shredded carrots. It keeps a good long time in fridge... basically a pickle when done... nice cool (no pun intended) side dish for fried seafood.
