Fried Shrimp Balls

I once hand-carried a box of "food for the gods" to the States and the US Customs officers were fascinated why it's called "food for the gods". I told them they'd feel closer to heaven when they eat the cookie.

If they see these crawly lumps, they'd probably call it "food for the aliens". I was thinking of bizarre-looking creatures from outer space that we've seen in the movies. These messy lumps are actually shrimp balls wrapped in wonton strips and then deep fried. It's crispy on the outside (wonton noodles), soft and tasty on the inside (shrimp paste)---dip it in ketchup or in sweet and spicy sauce. Lose that eww look on your face---it's a delightful appetizer!

When i saw on the comment love fried shrimp ball, I expect the usual ball looking thingy just to find out it's far from being one. :D

ditto with willa. clever idea though on using wonton strips. i'm sure my son who loves tempura would love this also. all because of that crunchy wonton strips.

happy ff!
