Thai Food Experiment - Shrimp Cakes

My ultimate favorite food I recently ate in Thailand is Shrimp Cakes!

I loved it! Tita Jit brought me 2x to Hua Lumphun, a restaurant in the outskirts of Bangkok about an hour and a half away from the city.

That's how much I love it!


And that's how much Tita Jit loves me!!!  Thank you!

1 C. Panko breadcrumbs

1 liter of cooking oil for deep frying

Measure 30 grams or 1T. paste, form it into a ball then roll in breadcrumbs.

Poke a hole into the center of the ball so it will look like a donut.
