1/2 pound shrimp, minced

1 garlic clove, minced

2 scallions (white and green parts), minced

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

4 teaspoons sherry

Olive oil


  1. Process or blend the shrimp with the garlic, scallions, salt, flour, sherry, and enough water to make a thick batter. Let stand, covered with plastic film, for 1 hour. Then fry, in drops of 1 heaping teaspoon, into the oil poured to a depth of 2 inches in a pan, for about 1 minute each side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
