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 :)
