Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound shrimp, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 scallions (white and green parts), minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons sherry
  • Olive oil

Directions

Process or blend the shrimp with the garlic, scallions, salt, flour, sherry, and enough water to make a thick batter. Let stand, covered with plastic film, for 1 hour. Then fry, in drops of 1 heaping teaspoon, into the oil poured to a depth of 2 inches in a pan, for about 1 minute each side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
