Ingredients

How to make it

  • Prepare Shrimp Balls:
  • Pulse shrimp in a food processor until finely chopped.
  • Transfer to a large bowl, then stir in water chestnuts, egg white, pork fat, rice wine, ginger, scallion, salt, and cornstarch.
  • Beat shrimp mixture vigorously with a wooden spoon and throw it against side of bowl until combined well and compacted.
  • Wet your hands with cold water and form teaspoons of shrimp mixture into balls, arranging in 1 layer on a wax-paper–lined tray.
  • Coat balls, 1 at a time, in panko, then arrange in 1 layer on another wax-paper–lined tray.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Heat oil in a 5-quart pot until a deep-fat thermometer registers 375°F and fry balls in 4 batches, turning, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until golden and just cooked through. (Return oil to 375°F between batches.)
  • Transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. When all shrimp balls are fried, reheat on a rack set in a shallow baking pan in middle of oven until just hot, about 2 minutes.
  • **Note: Shrimp balls may be coated and fried 1 day ahead, cooled completely, then chilled, covered. Bring to room temperature before reheating.

  • Prepare Apricot Dipping Sauce:
  • Melt jam in a small saucepan. Stir in remaining ingredients with salt and pepper to taste and serve warm.
  • **Note: Sauce may be made 2 days ahead, cooled, then chilled, covered. Reheat sauce over low heat, stirring.

    I saw your similar recipe for this after I posted my coconut shrimp recipe. I love shrimp toast but find the bread absorbs too much oil. These sound like perfect solution with the light panko breading :-)
