Deep Fried Ground Shrimp Balls with Great Texture

Deep Fried Ground Shrimp Balls with Great Texture

These deep fried shrimp morsels are surprisingly easy to make. The wonderful texture of shrimp is unbeatable. You can even make this without a food processer!

Ingredients: Serves 4

Shelled prawns
1 piece
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Prepare the shrimp. De-vein them and rub them with salt and katakuriko (not listed in the ingredient list).
2. Mince half the shrimp into a paste. I did this with a knife. If you have a food processor, you can use it. Roughly chop the remaining shrimp.
3. Put the hanpen into a bowl and break it apart with your fingers.
4. IAdd the shrimp from Step 2, mayonnaise, egg, katakuriko, salt, and pepper to the Step 3 bowl. Mix everything together well. Adjust the amount of egg as necessary if the mixture is too loose.
5. Divide the mixture into 4 portions. Form each part into a patty. Cover the patties with flour, dip in egg, and then cover in panko bread crumbs (not listed). Fry the patties until they turn a nice golden brown color.
