Baked Shrimp Balls

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by MarraMamba

I love shrimp balls, but not the deep fried ones. Steamed dumplings are great but often take more time than I want. These are easier than apple pie but taste terrific and are low fat. I often leave out the water chestnuts. Other additions are green onions or garlic to taste.

I took Mikekey's advice and added more cornstarch (2 tblsps). I eyeballed the shrimp mixture and the 2 tblsps 'felt' right. The shrimp balls firmed up very nicely and were great finger food. Great flavour, easy to make, and I LOVED that they weren't fried!

  1. Place everything into a bowl and mix together.
  2. Shape mixture into small balls. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Spray balls with olive oil (I use a spray bottle) and bake at 350ºF for 25 minutes.
  3. Serve hot with lemon wedges or chili sauce (sweet or not).
