These fritters are made from raw shrimp, which can often be harder to find than cooked shrimp for some reason! I often buy bags of frozen raw shrimp and then run them under cold water for ten minutes or so to defrost them. 

The lime mayo is a great addition to the fritters, but you could also serve it with sour cream or low carb ketchup.

How to Make Low Carb Shrimp Fritters

Place the raw shrimp and half a roughly chopped bell pepper (any color!) into a food processor. Pulse a few times until it is coarsely chopped – don't grind to a paste! Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add a beaten egg, low carb breadcrumbs (for gluten free you could use pork panko instead), finely chopped green onions, and a generous amount of salt and black pepper.

Mix well and set aside. Make the lime mayo by combining regular mayonnaise with grated lime zest (I use a Microplane zester) and fresh lime juice.

All this can be prepared in advance! When ready to cook, heat a non-stick skillet over a medium heat and drop the shrimp mixture into the skillet in four piles. Smooth them out into fritters.
