Shrimp Croquettes with Spicy Hummus Dipping Sauce

Croquettes can be created from your favorite ingredients and once you learn the technique, it’s easy. I like to use a food processor to mix my croquettes. It saves a lot of hand chopping time.

In this recipe I use shrimp, but you can try scallops, tuna, cod, salmon, rockfish, cooked lobster meat or even my favorite Maryland crabmeat!

Croquettes can be assembled ahead of time, fried, and frozen. To avoid frying, simply spray them with Pam and place them into the oven to bake at about 350F for 12 minutes. If you are baking from a frozen state simply add another minute or two until they are cooked through. The insides must be opaque.

  • In a food processor combine the shrimp, cheese, cheese, rice, garlic, salt, cilantro, and eggs and pulse until a paste is formed.
  • Scoop out the shrimp mixture and make 12 equal balls, or about 1 heaping tablespoon each.
  • In a small shallow bowl pour in the breadcrumbs and cilantro and mix.
  • Pour the olive oil in a medium sauce pan and heat it to 350F.
  • Meanwhile, dip each croquettes into the breadcrumbs.
  • Roll them around until they are well coated and place them on a clean plate.
  • Fry the croquettes in batches in the olive oil for about 2 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
  • The croquettes should be completely submerged.
  • Also, make sure to carefully move them around in the oil so they fry evenly.
  • When they are done, remove the croquettes from the oil and place them on a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
  • While the croquettes are frying prepare the Hummus dipping sauce by combing the hummus and the chili sauce and mixing until blended.
  • Serve the croquettes warm with the dipping sauce.
  • For the fried croquettes:
  • 3/4 pound fresh raw shrimp, shelled and deveined and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked white rice
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite finely chopped fresh herbs such as cilantro, flat leaf parsley, curly parsley chives, or chervil
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2 cups olive oil
  • For the coating:
  • 1 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro or your favorite herb
  • For the sauce:
  • 3/4 cup Hummus
  • 1 Tablespoon chili sauce, or more to make it super spicy!
