Bola Bola Shrimp Balls

In the Phillipines meat balls are called bola bola's and they can be made of whatever the cook desires. They are served with a dipping sauce and can be used as a main dish or an appetizer. These can be made ahead and frozen and when ready to use; thaw and fry. They have to chill for at least 1 hour. The sauce takes 10 minutes to put together and at that time, add heat to make it as fiery as you like.
