Maybe this is an old recipe but since I haven’t done it in awhile, I’m putting on this newer version…
6 large fresh shrimp–toss in buttered fry pan till they turn a nice deep pink, flip over. Cook a a minute longer.
Cool and cut up in small pieces. Set aside.
Mix together: 1 cup of sifted flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder,
1 egg, and either a little milk, cream or fish broth (if using canned shrimp, cheater! then toss in the juice as well)
Add chopped onion–about 2 tablespoons
and chopped cilantro–about 2 tablespoons
Fling in the shrimp and coat well.
Fry in hot corn oil (I like Mazola with a touch of olive oil–FIRST COLD PRESS, EXTRA VIRGIN, of course!) a tablespoonful at a time. Set out on a plate with kitchen paper to absorb the oil.
