- 1 pound mixed seafood (such as shrimp, scallops, and/or diced fish)
- 1 small onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 small chili pepper, minced (optional)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- In a large bowl, combine the seafood, onion, garlic, chili pepper (if using), egg, breadcrumbs, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
- Shape the mixture into patties about 1/2-inch thick.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the patties to the skillet and cook until they are golden brown on both sides and the seafood is cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side.
- Serve the patties hot, with your choice of dipping sauce or served on buns as sandwiches. Enjoy!
