Lightly fried, the combination of shrimp with the fresh ingredients turns out a nice, full-flavored teaser before your real meal begins. Fresh shrimp is naturally sweet; when it is blended with fragrant onions, garlic, and shallots, it becomes a complex dish that’s made even richer when deep-fried. Shrimp brochettes are not as popular as they should be, but I’m seeing more of them in the restaurants in Little Saigon. For a bit of an Americanized twist, these brochettes are now being made with cheese, which I have decided to do here. A stale baguette is the perfect bread to use.
