This shrimp version of the fish paste described is rich in flavor and somewhat firmer in texture. It makes an ideal stuffing for vegetables such as bitter melon and can also be used to stuff bean curd or to make Shrimp Toast. Here we form it into balls and deep-fry them for a superb and simple appetizer.
