|Minced Crab with Shrimp|
1/2 pound cooked crab meat, diced
1/2 pound shrimp, minced fine
2 scallions, whites only, minced, green part slivered
1 egg white
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1. Divide crab meat into eight portions, making each of them into a ball and squeezing out any excess liquid.
2. Mix shrimp paste, egg white, scallion whites and cornstarch and then divide this into eight portions, making a flat coin-shape for each of them. Put crab ball in the center and gently close the shrimp mixture around it.
3. Bring two cups of water to the boil, and using a small strainer or a slotted spoon, lower the shrimp balls into the water for one minute, then remove them. This is best done two at a time.
4. Heat oil and fry the shrimp balls stirring very gently, for one minute until pink and heated through. Put them on a preheated serving plate, sprinkle the green scallion slivers on top, and serve.
