Golden Shrimps Puff

Golden Shrimps Puff (Prawns)

Ingredients:

750 g Fresh raw shrimps

4 medium Red chilies finely chopped

1/2 cup Fresh coriander leaves

2 Egg whites

1 tablespoon Finely grated fresh ginger

2 cloves Garlic, chopped

1 tablespoon Fish sauce

1/3 cup Rice flour or cornflour

1/2 cup Cooking oil

Chili sauce to serve

Method:

Peel and de-vein the shrimps. Place the shrimp meat, chili, coriander leaves, egg white, ginger, garlic and fish sauce in a food processor and process for 10 seconds or until the mixture is well combined. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the flour. Refrigerate the shrimp mixture for at least 30 minutes or until you are ready to fry the puffs.

 

Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan. Very gently drop rounded teaspoons of the mixture into the hot oil and cook for 2 minutes, carefully turning them with tongs until golden brown on all sides. Drain the puffs on paper towels and serve immediately with chili sauce.

 

Note: Do not over process or overcook the mixture or it will become tough.
