Crispy shrimp fritters loaded with shrimp and bean sprouts. This homemade shrimp fritters recipe is so easy to make and taste so good with chili sauce.


– 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted – 1 tablespoon rice flour, optional – 4 oz. (115 g) peeled baby shrimp, rinsed and pat dry – 4 oz. (115 g) bean sprouts, rinsed – 2 tablespoon chopped scallions or chives – 1 large egg – 3/4 cup water – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce – 1/2 teaspoon sugar – Oil, for deep-frying

Step 1

Combine all the ingredients (except the oil) in a bowl and mix well.

Step 2

The mixture might seem very dry at first, but eventually, it will become slightly watery.

Step 3

Heat up a wok with enough oil for shallow-frying. As soon as the oil is fully heated, lower it to medium heat. Use a tablespoon to scoop up a heaping tablespoon of the mixture and gently drop it into the wok.

Step 4

Repeat the same until the oil is 80% filled with the shrimp fritters (you will have to fry in 2-3 batches depending on the size of your wok).

Step 5

Turn the shrimp fritters over and fry until both sides are golden brown. Dish out with a strainer, draining excess oil by laying the shrimp fritters on a dish lined with paper towels. Serve immediately with your favorite chili sauce.
