Shrimp Cakes and Greek Potatoes

We had a modified version of these Shrimp Burgers for dinner tonight.  Yes, I did use the egg (we can have limited eggs).  They were delicious!  The boys even ate their required amount for dinner, too.  I also made Greek Lemon Potatoes and we had a salad of tomatoes, cucumbers, and Greek olives with olive oil and salt and pepper to flavor.  Very nice. 

Here is the Greek Lemon Potatoes recipe:
5 potatoes (or enough that when you cut them up they fit into a baking dish)
juice of 3 lemons
2/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp. oregano, dried
4 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper to taste

In a bowl combing all the ingredients minus the potatoes (I use a whisk).  Set aside.  Peel potatoes and cut lengthwise (remember, to dry your potatoes with a towel so they will not stick to the pan while cooking)- you can cut the smaller- they will cook faster.  Let marinade one hour (optional).  Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven. Uncover and cook an additional 30 minutes (I actually broiled them) or until potatoes are browned. Remove pan from the oven and let stand a few minutes before serving.  YUM!

Ok.  This was super yummy.  So yummy that when my husband suggested that he take the shrimp "burgers" to work, I said, "no!"  And so I had them for lunch today:)

OOh... this might be just what the doctor ordered for Job! I think he's needing a major protein lift already :) I'm hoping I can make this or something similar without the egg.

Thanks so much for the link! Sounds SO good, especially paired with greek potatoes!
