ingredients

directions

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the evaporated milk.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and the seasonings. Mix until smooth.
  • Add the shrimp and mixed vegetables, combining well.
  • Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet to medium heat.
  • Drop batter by tablespoonfuls and fry until golden brown.
  • I usually fry 1 or 2 patties and taste them to make sure seasoning is just right. Adjust seasoning if needed.
  • Using a bamboo skewer, pierce the center of patty to make sure that skewer comes out clean. A little bit of dough will be on the skewer but as long as it's not runny and still wet looking, it should be done.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve at room temperature.

    This is the first time I've heard of this recipe definite going to try it. I just got an air fryer I wonder if I can use this instead of frying in a pan.

    I also add a very small can of cream of corn, chopped scallions(about 2), and a dash of red pepper powder. I add about less the accent it's called for and it turns out delish. I always use canola oil. When frying, make sure to keep your heat at med high. Once they turn golden brown and float to the top, they are done.

    I made this recipe as a side dish and it was everyone's favorite. It was very tasty and very different than usual shrimp recipes we see always. <br/>Thanks for sharing it with us and I will make this again for sure.<br/>My husband tells me that the Chamorro Shrimp Patties were tastier even than crab cakes.<br/>Santi

    This recipe is even better than the one I tried from a Guam Cookbook. Thanks for posting.
