How to make it

  • Heat shortening; add flour & stir constantly until golden brown. Add onion, green bell pepper & celery. Stir until soft. Add water, shrimp & seasonings; simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat & cool slightly. Add 1 and 1/2 cups soft, moistened bread crumbs & parsley. Shape mixture into small balls & roll in fine, dry bread crumbs. Fry in deep hot shortening (not oil, as they don't get nice & crispy & they absorb too much oil). Fry for about 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with Shrimp Sauce Erath: Combine 1/4 cup mayonnaise,1/4 cup worcestershire sauce,1/4 cup ketchup, 1 teasp. horseradish, 1/4 teasp. garlic powder, 1/4 teasp. black pepper & 1/8 teasp. cayenne pepper. Mix well & chill thoroughly. Sprinkle minced hard-boiled egg on top of sauce before serving.
