With Lent upon us, there are certain food staples that I have inherited from my grandfather and the main and most amazing cook of the family, my Auntie Rosie. Around this time of year, every Friday when I get to my aunt’s house, I know there will be fish tacos, chile rellenos, and shrimp patties. Yes, shrimp patties! I must confess I first found them extremely strange because they are made with real shrimp and shrimp powder. But don't get me wrong, though, these interesting crispy little critters are super tasty! I like it when my tía makes 5 or 6 different dips to sink her delish patties. Keep an open mind and give these a try! MORE + LESS -
