Delicious shrimp fritters, hot and spicy, ready in no time, a glass of fresh white wine or rosé and it’s happy hour already….

These shrimp fritters are better served lukewarm, still very good served cold too. I would advise to eat them within 5 hours.

You can serve these fritter as an appetizer, like I did here, or as a dish. This recipe makes for an appetizer for 6 servings.

Recipe :

Ingredients :

1 long red pepper

1 scallion

1 tbsp. coriander minced

7 oz. (200 g.) shelled small shrimps

1 cup (130 g) flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Salt pepper

3/4 to 1 cup cold water

Frying oil

Prepare the shrimp mixture: 

Cut the red pepper in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and mince finely

Mince scallion up to some of the green part

Into the bowl of your processor, chop about 2/3 of the shrimps

Mince the rest of shrimps

Add all the ingredients together with the coriander into a bowl and mix thoroughly

Prepare the batter:

Into another bowl, add flour and baking powder, mix

Add water slowly, up until the batter becomes homogenous, but on the thick side, (not as liquid as a crepe batter). You may not need all the water

Add the shrimp mixture, stir, add salt and pepper to your taste

Frying the shrimp fritters:

Heat your frying oil to 350°F (180°C)

Spoon the batter into the frying oil, don’t put too many fritters at a time and turn them over time to time. Count one teaspoon for a bitesize fritter (as in the picture) if you serve them as an appetizer, or 1 tbsp. (two bites)

The fritters are ready when they are on the dark side of golden

Set aside on a kitchen paper

Serve lukewarm (if possible) with your choice of dipping sauce, my favourite, Sweet chili Sauce, or a spiced mayo

Enjoy!
