    Hope someone can help bring an end to my search for dried shrimp powder! My 80-year old Mexican mother has been craving the little shrimp patties made with dried shrimp that have been ground. I have no specialty stores in my area, and even an on-line search brought no results. I know she refers to the powder as "camerrone" (not sure if that's how it is spelled). I would SO like to find a supplier of it so I could send her some as a big surprise. Thanks so much!

    Here is a link for you. I can find it locally here in the Mexican spices.

    My mom makes these shrimp patties and puts them in a red chile sauce. MMMMMM It's almost that time of year when she makes them.

    "Camarón molido seco", if that helps in your searching.

    Around here, you can get it in asian markets as well, so you might check there for online suppliers. (I've heard mexicans complain that the asian kind "isn't right", but I've heard vietnamese people complain the chinese kind isn't right, so apparently there is more than one asian kind, so maybe one of them is the same as the mexican kind. Or maybe your mom is too desparate to be picky. There a kind made from fermented shrimp, esp in like Indonesia, which is probably not what your mom wants?) Googling now, I see several african soup recipes using it as an ingredient, so I suppose an african market might have it, too.

    I'd appreciate if you could post how your mom makes her dish. The other half of my household and I were arguing about what to do with the powder just this week in the grocery store. (For some reason he had an antipathy toward just, you know, buying some.)

    Thanks, and good luck!

    ETA This is the brand in the stores around here, fwiw.

    Thanks so much for your reply! My Grandmother bought the powder from mexican markets, and from what my mother has told me, mixed it with beaten egg whites and flour, sounds somewhat similar to making crab cakes or fritters. Don't know about the difference of asian markets.
    Anyway, hopefully someone can find me a source! Thanks again! icon_wink.gif

    Oh, Realbirdlady...posted my reply before I clicked on the link you sent...sorry! Looks like they offer dried shrimp in a ground powder!!! Will order some right away and have it shipped to my mom. I can't thank you enough! It may seem like a small thing to some people, but to an 80-year old precious mother who hasn't tasted these shrimp patties since her mother died 15 years ago, it means a lot! Bless you!

    Hi Realbirdlady! Just wanted you to know that I ordered the dried shrimp powder from the link you sent. Talked to my mom last night (she's in another state) and she said she got it and had made the patties earlier that afternoon! She said traditionally they were made on Ash Wednesday, and during Lent, but she was so excited she couldn't wait. She had also just made fresh tortillas, so she was in Heaven! Can't thank you enough...you've made her very happy! icon_biggrin.gif

    I'll have to ask my mom how she makes them. I've had them twice this year already and a few more times to come during lent season!

    Oh! This is different than what I was imagining. I was thinking something like salmon croquettes except with shrimp, or shrimp tamales or something. It never occurred to me that the pattie part was just eggs. Interesting...

    If you had just told me this recipe, I would have been sure the patties would turn to mush in the sauce. I'm fortunate enough to be live where we can get fresh shrimp, so going to the trouble to get dried shrimp doesn't make so much sense, but this is a very interesting technique. It should work for other flavorings in the eggs or sauce...

    Here is another link. This one has a recipe for shrimp patties. This recipe uses mole sauce and nopalitos (cactus). I've never had them with mole sauce and nopalitos, but this is the recipe for the shrimp patties. Just use red chile instead of the mole.

    I hope this helps.
