Crispy Fried Shrimp Cake (香脆炸蝦餅)

A few weeks ago, I tried to make Crispy Fried Shrimp Cake, a popular snack in Malaysia.  I based off the recipe from the youtube video listed below with some modifications:

  • I used general purpose flour, some tapioca flour and water as the batter;
  • I only added shredded carrots and green onion to the batter;
  • I did, however, added some oatmeal, trying to increase its crispiness;
  • Last but not least, instead of scooping the batter into the hot oil directly, I submerged a large metal spoon into the hot oil first for a couple of minutes, took the spoon out of the hot oil, poured a thin layer of batter onto the spoon, then topped the batter with a shrimp before dipping it into the hot oil.

The fried shrimp cakes were tasty, but, become soften when they got cold.  So, we finished them before they got cold :)
