    Daydream's Note:

    These tasty morsels are always popular as an appetizer and team well with the sweet chili dipping sauce. Add more chilies to the sauce if you like it hot! You can obtain fish sauce (and also a sweet chili dipping sauce, if you prefer not to make your own) in an Asian food store. The fritters can also be served with my Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, posted separately.

    Shrimp and Ginger Fritters

    Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce


    1. 1
      Shrimp and Ginger Fritters: Place the breadcrumbs and coconut milk together in a bowl, and set aside.
    2. 2
      Place the shrimp meat, ginger, cilantro, egg and fish sauce into a food processor bowl, and pulse until the mixture is combined.
    3. 3
      It is important not to over-mix or otherwise it will turn into a paste!
    4. 4
      Add the breadcrumbs, which by now should have absorbed all the coconut milk, and pulse until just blended.
    5. 5
      Heat the vegetable oil over high heat, or to 350 degrees F (180 C) in a deep-fryer.
    6. 6
      Drop rounded tablespoons of the mixture into the hot oil, and cook until golden brown on all sides, about 2 minutes.
    7. 7
      Do this in batches.
    8. 8
      As the fritters cook, remove from the oil with a slotted spoon, drain on kitchen paper, and keep warm in a low oven.
    9. 9
      Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce: Place all ingredients in a blender and whizz until blended and sugar is dissolved.
    10. 10
      Serve in a small bowl (it yields 1 cup) to accompany the Asian Shrimp and Ginger Fritters.

      Out of this world good. I used Creamy Coconut Milk for the coconut milk, and I only had 1 c. bread crumbs so added panko crumbs. I would eat this every night if I could. I loved this so much it spoiled my Asian dinner salad.

      These are very good to have for a party. I must have mixed them right as they did'nt turn into paste. I really liked the Sauce and I used the sambal oelek, which I followed exactly and found it was very tasty as is. This is a handy sauce to have for spring rolls etc.
