  • Then fold the top corner down, making sure to cover the top end of the shrimp.Roll the shrimp as tightly as possible and as straight as you can manage until there’s just a little corner left.
  • Using your finger apply a little of the flour paste to the corner of the wrapper and seal it.

*Repeat for all shrimp*

shrimpfry

  • In a pan, add about an inch or so of oil to fry the shrimp.(I suggest use a deep fryer if you have one, but have enough oil to cover at least 3/4 of the shrimp if not the whole shrimp is all you really need) Heat the oil through on medium-high.
  • Fry the shrimp in small batches depending on the size of your pan/ deep fryer and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
