My mom used to make fritters but I don’t know its name, or if it’s made of very small fish or shrimps. It was a very easy and simple dish but it was so yummy that I always ask for more rice. 🙂 I missed it so much and I told myself, I will make my own fritters.
That’s the good thing I like about cooking – you can experiment on your ingredients without worrying too much about the outcome and adjust the ingredients or do a taste test until you feel satisfied with it. No matter how easy the dish may seem, I still feel very much happy when it turns out to be successful. Like this dish I am going to share today, you just have to gather all the ingredients you need, mix and fry. 🙂
Shrimp Fritters Recipe
- 1 cup shrimps, shells removed and deveined, cut into small pieces
- ¼ cup grated squash (or carrots)
- ¼ cup sliced green onion
- ¼ cup chopped onion
- ¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
- 1 ½ tsp roasted chili paste
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1 cup flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp parsley flakes (optional)
- 1 large egg
- water, as needed
Mix everything together. (For the water, add as needed and stop when the consistency is enough for you.) Make sure they are well combined. Fry on a hot oil and flip when the other side is done. Drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Serve with your favorite sauce.
Note: You can use chicken or flaked fish. You can put any ingredients you know that would make good fritters; just balance the water and the flour, and of course the taste. So, do some experiment and let me know. 🙂
This recipe has been updated as I missed the water in the ingredients list. Thanks, Cris, for brining this to my attention.
