1 pound cooked seafood, chopped
1/4 cup key lime juice
1 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
1 teaspoon fish sauce or Worcestershire
1/4 teaspoon salt

Heat olive oil in sauté pan over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic and green onions. Cook

In a large bowl mix seafood with lime zest and juice. Add cooked garlic and onions,
cracker crumbs and smoked paprika. Stir to combine well.
In a small bowl, mix together eggs, fish sauce and mayonnaise. Pour over seafood mixture
and stir lightly until completely combined.

cook until brown and crisp, turning once. Serve immediately on a bed of fresh spinach with Key
