How to make it

  • Separate eggs by putting the yolks in a small dish and the whites in a large mixing bowl. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer until they are stiff. Continue to beat the stiffened egg whites as you add the ground shrimp and then the egg yolks to make a batter. Beat only until all the ingredients are blended.
  • Heat 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium heat to approximately 400 degrees F. Ladle 1/4 cup batter into the skillet. It should float and begin to sizzle immediately. Fry the shrimp patty, turning once with a spatula, until golden, about 1 minute per side. Remove the patty with a slotted spoon to a large plate lined with paper towels and drain. Repeat the procedure until all the batter is used. This makes about 9 or 10 patties.
  • To serve, pour red chile sauce with the nopalitos on each of 4 plates to make a pool. Place 2 shrimp patties in the center of each pool. Serve at once with rice and beans and warmed flour or corn tortillas, if desired.
