Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 32 minutes
Total Time: 37 minutes
Servings: 14 -24 meatballs


  • 1 box 14 oz Gorton's popcorn shrimp
  • 1/2 teaspoon old bay seasoning
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • For the garlic aioli:
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 garlic cloves minced


  • To make the shrimp meatballs: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Bake popcorn shrimp for 12 minutes, remove from oven.
  • Put cooked popcorn shrimp and remaining ingredients (old bay, green onions, Worcestershire sauce, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice) in a food processor and process until well combined (I processed mine for 30 seconds, scrape down the sides and then processed for another 10 seconds.)
  • Use a tablespoon cookie scoop or your hand to form tablespoon size meatballs with contents of the food processor. Put formed meatballs onto lined baking sheet sprayed with cooking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and rotate/flip meatballs and bake for another 10 minutes, then remove from oven.
  • While the meatballs are baking, make the garlic aioli by combining all the ingredients in a bowl and stirring well. Transfer sauce into a piping bag, or into a ziplock bag and then cut of the corner to make it function like a piping bag.
  • When meatballs are done, arrange them on a plate and squeeze a little aioli onto each meatball, serve remaining aioli on the side for dipping, enjoy!
