By Paula Detwiller

Giants or Patriots? Eli Manning or Tom Brady?

Wait a minute. Isn’t the real question “Crab Dip” or “Shrimp Cakes”?

Whether you cheer for New England or New York (or neither!), Super Bowl Sunday is a great reason for a get-together. And to make sure you have the freshest ingredients possible for your Super Bowl party, be sure to stop by the Delray GreenMarket the day before.

 

Football Lover’s Food

From Anita’s Guacamole to Mozzarita Fresh Italian Cheeses to half-sours from The Happy Pickle, we’ve got football fans’ favorite finger foods. But that’s just for starters. Here are two “super” appetizers from our GreenMarket cookbook, Tastes of the Season, that are sure to please the palate. Both use fresh seafood and vegetables available at the GreenMarket.

Shrimp Cakes  (recipe from GreenMarket shopper Carolyn Donohue)

1 lb. uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 large Russet potato, peeled and finely chopped

1 medium onion, finely chopped

4 green onions, finely chopped

3 Tablespoons flour

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

Grind the shrimp in a food processor to a coarse consistency. Add the potato and onion and pulse just to combine. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in the green onions. Fold in the flour and eggs, add the salt & pepper. Heat 2 inches of oil in a deep skillet over medium heat until it reaches 375 degrees. Working in batches, drop the shrimp mixture by the spoonful into the oil. Fry the shrimp cakes until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Season with salt & pepper and serve hot.
