“This recipe adds a chilli kick to juicy shrimp and makes an ideal snack to hand around with drinks.”
16 balls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Tip the shrimp, ginger, garlic, chili, cilantro, scallion and cornstarch into a food processor - and blend until well mixed. Add the egg, sesame oil, rice wine, soy sauce and salt - blitz once more to combine all the ingredients.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok over a medium heat. Drop teaspoons of the mixture into the hot oil and deep fry, turning over when golden on one side.
  3. Lift the balls out with a slotted spoon when golden brown - they should take about 2 minutes on each side. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper
  4. Squeeze lime juice over them before serving and serve straight away with a shop-bought chilli sauce.
