2 Tbsp parsley finely chopped, plus more to garnish
1/2 tsp sea salt or to taste

Shrimp Cakes

 Pat dry shrimp with paper towels then dice into pea-sized pieces.
Transfer chopped shrimp to a large mixing bowl. 
Add mozzarella, eggs, mayo, parsley, salt and pepper. 
Stir together then add almond flour and mix until well combined.

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add oil. 
Add 1 heaping Tbsp at a time (or a level ice cream scoop) and flatten so they are about 1/2" thick patties. 
Saute about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown on the edges and cooked through.

Lemon Mayo Sauce:

In a small bowl, add mayo and stir to remove any lumps. 
Add lemon zest,  lemon juice and pressed garlic clove 
Stir to combine. 

Notes: You can use a food processor to chop the shrimp, but pulse carefully so you don’t turn it into ground shrimp meat.
