Prawn Croquettes (咸香虾枣可乐饼)

A dish of my crazing cooking adventure. Nothing much to share except the recipe. I believed it is presentable to be prepared for entertaining house guests or as a party snack.

It is some prawns, salted egg yolks wrapped in meshed hard bean curd (taukwa) and salted egg white. Taste is good and family members loved it. Preparation is simple and can be done within an hour.

Quantities listed here are mostly estimates as consistent with most savoury dishes. Variations are many and full of flexibilities. If you want, you can try to use air fryer to fry it.  Sauces can be added but is not included in this recipe. Suggested sauce is to drizzle with mayonnaise. It goes well with sweet Thai chilli sauce.

I have a hard time of giving it a name, therefore, I have decided to use a simple name, “Prawn Croquettes” for this simple dish . The name was initiated by my Facebook friends and I have to thank them for helping me to think of a name.

  • Use the same food processor to blend salted egg white, firm bean curd, eggs, spring onion, corn flour and onion until a paste is form. If the paste is overly sticky, you can add a tablespoon or two of the biscuits crumbs prepared earlier. Add seasonings (light soya sauce, sugar, sesame oil and pinches of salt). Note that there is salted egg in the paste, therefore, your addition of salt and light soya sauce have to take into consideration this. Divide the paste into 10-12 equal portions.

  • Heat some cooking oil in a pan under high heat. The cooking oil is consider hot enough for deep frying when a wooden chopstick inserted and bubbles start to emit. Deep fry the prawn croquettes until it is golden brown in the outer skin. You may want to reduce your heat to medium if you are afraid of getting it burnt. The frying process will take about 10-15 minutes. Once taken out from the oil, drained and put on top of an oil absorbing paper before serving. Best served with Thai chilli sauce or drizzle with mayonnaise.
