Recently, I shared an Instagram (follow me!) story of eating fried shrimp balls at a Chinese dim sum restaurant, and many followers asked me for the recipe. Today, I am sharing with you my shrimp balls recipe. Don’t you think they look oh-so-adorable with the crispy and crunchy skin?
How to Make Shrimp Balls from Scratch
This recipe is adapted from the Crunchy Shrimp Balls recipe in my Easy Chinese Recipes cookbook. My cookbook is the highest rated Chinese cookery book on Amazon, so buy a copy if you haven’t.
Making shrimp balls is fun. First, you blend the shrimp and the seasonings to form the shrimp paste. Then you cut up the spring roll wrappers into strips. Wet your hands with some water, make the shrimp paste into balls, roll them over the bed of spring roll strips, and off they go into a deep fryer or wok for deep-frying. The recipe is super easy and fail proof!
Fried shrimp ball is a great appetizer. It’s often served as a dim sum at Hong Kong-style restaurants or dim sum restaurants. Dim Sum is quite a delicacy, with morsels of bite-sized appetizers served in bamboo steamers, or deep-fried to golden perfection.
I love shrimp and I can chow down dozens of these shrimp balls any time of the day! They are just wonderful.
