These shrimp meatballs with garlic aioli make for the perfect unique entertaining recipe that guests will love (every time I’ve made these the plate was cleared!)
So I have to ask a question…are there certain things that you just cannot pass up at parties in terms of food? For me, it’s meatballs.
If I see food in meatball form, I just HAVE to try it.
If we’re being honest, It’s not just at parties. I love trying different kinds of meatballs anytime.
It was right before we were going to have some people over and I was getting some popcorn shrimp out that I was going to make and serve (you know how much I love Gorton’s Seafood – these 5 ingredient fish stick wraps are always an awesome fast meal) and since I had two boxes, I thought I’d try something creative with one of them.
As the shrimp was baking, I was excitedly telling my husband what my plans were: that I was going to make shrimp meatballs for an appetizer. He gave me a look that said he was skeptical, at best lol.
I proceeded, undeterred.
The end result was amazing. Shrimp meatballs are like an elevated crab cake, but in fun meatball size with delicious flavors – and the garlic aioli on top is the perfect finish.
These shrimp meatballs are SO GOOD, that when I gave my husband one to try, he said jokingly “let me have another one, just to make sure I really like them”…then he proceeded to eat 10 meatballs lol. Thankfully I had a second box of popcorn shrimp, so I just whipped up another batch before guests arrived.
The next time you’re need of an impressive and unique party appetizer, I’d totally recommend making these shrimp meatballs with garlic aioli!
