Fried Shrimp Puffs – 炸虾角

Crispy and light on the outside, sweet and tender prawn filling on the inside. This dish makes for a great snack for any occasion. What makes it great is that the puffs stays crispy for a long time, and for us it’s our go to choice when paired with a couple of drinks. Serve it with sambal chilli mix with a squeeze of calamansi juice or sweet soy sauce for those who do take spicy food.
