Spicy Shrimp Rice Cakes

These feel restaurant quality every time. 

These spicy shrimp rice cakes quickly became a favorite in my home! 
I'm one of those people who could have sushi everyday, not joking. Unfortunately that's not very feasible as good sushi restaurants get pretty pricy. This recipe is surprisingly affordable and easy to put together. The hardest part is making sure the rice cakes stay together, but I have some tips and trick for that :) 
Lets get cooking!!
