Recipe - Shrimp pops


Ingredients -
  1. Shrimps - 250 gms
  2. Red chilli powder - 2 tsp
  3. Salt - 1 tsp
  4. Lemon juice - 2 tsp
  5. Rice flour - for coating
  6. Oil - 1 TabSp
Method -
1. We first need to clean the shrimps properly.
2. Break the head off and throw away. Press the bottom of the tail with two fingers to slide the meat out of the shell. There will still be some shell at the center of the meat, peal it off as well.
3. Run either a small knife or your thumbnail along the spine of the shrimp so that the meat opens up a bit. You will see a black thread like thing running along the length at the center of the meat. This is the food pipe of the shrimp. Take it out. This is likely to cause food poisoning if not taken out.
4. wash the shrimps well.
5. Marinate them in the lemon juice, salt and red chilli powder for a couple of hours.
6. Heat oil in a frying pan.
7. Coat the marinated shrimps in rice flour.
8. Shallow fry the shrimps till they are golden brown.
9. Can be served with ketchup or chilli sauce
