12 ounces fresh prawns, shelled removed and discarded, black veins too, then mince the shrimp
5 ounces squid, cleaned, cartilage removed and discarded, then minced
1 ounce pork fat, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg white
1 Tablespoon rice wine
1 Tablespoon potato starch
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 you tiao (Chinese crullers), cut into two-inch pieces
2 cups vegetable oil
chili sauce for dipping
1. Mix minced shrimp, squid, and pork fat, then add the salt and mix well.
2. Cut slit in each piece of the cruller, but do not cut this all the way through, and stuff each slit with this seafood mixture.
3. Heat oil in deep fryer or a deep pot, and deep fry them in two or three batches for two minutes, remove and drain on paper towels, then fry some more of them. Do not over-fry them as they can get hard.
4. Serve with the chili sauce as a dipping sauce.
