Potato-Chip-Shrimp-Cakes

It’s time for another Improv Challenge (a monthly recipe bloghop where Kristen @ Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker assigns two ingredients and all us participants get cooking.) And this month’s theme is…Fish & Chips!

Of course, this is the traditional British battered and fried cod and potato dish but part of the fun is to get creative with the two ingredients. Here I may have taken some liberty by using shrimp, which technically is shellfish and not fish fish. But fish will get its due in this post – no worries.
