Shrimps Fritters Recipe

Shrimps Fritters Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

225 g/8 oz/2 cups plain (all-purpose) Flour
A pinch of salt
100 g/4 oz/0.5 cup butter or margarine

2 egg yolks
45 ml/3 tbsp single (light) cream
225 g/8 oz cooked, peeled shrimp
30 ml/2 tbsp lemon juice

Oil, for deep-frying
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Method :

Mix together the flour and salt, then rub in the butter or margarine until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the egg yolks and cream and work to a smooth dough. Wrap in clingfilm (plastic wrap) and chill for 30 minutes.


Sprinkle the shrimps with the lemon juice and leave to stand. Roll the dough into a long cylinder shape and slice off 2 cm/1 in pieces. Press a shrimp into each slice, then work the dough round the shrimp to make little balls. Heat the oil to 190C/375F, when a cube of day-old bread sinks to the bottom, then rises to the top and browns in 1 minute. Add the dough balls and fry (saute) for a few minutes until golden brown. Drain well on kitchen paper (paper towels) and serve hot with the lemon wedges.
