This tasty Thai appetizer comes from Three Hungry Tummies, an Australian food blog:


  • 1 kg of shrimp, peeled and rinsed (keep the heads and shells for other use)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2  tsp of sea salt
  • 3 coriander roots, cleaned and chopped
  • 1 tsp of white peppercorns
  • breadcrumbs (I used ponko)
  • oil for frying
  • cucumber and tomato slices to serve
  • sweet chilli sauce or plum sauce to serve
Pound garlic, salt, coriander roots and white peppercorns to a paste. This is also great as a marinade for bbq meat of fish.

Add paste to prawns and blend in a food processor til you get a thick paste.

Place prawn paste in a bowl and knead it til you get a sticky paste.

Form prawn paste into little patties and coat with breadcrumbs.

Serve with a dipping sauce and tomato and cucumber
