Spicy Firecracker Shrimp

Yields6 Servings

Spice up your dinner or party with this zesty recipe!

 12 Large shrimp
 6 Egg roll wrappers
 1 tbsp Flour with a little water (makes a paste to help seal the wrapping)
 Oil for frying
 3 tbsp Siracha or Hot Sauce
 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
 ½ tbsp Rice Vinegar
 1 tsp Sesame Oil
 3 Cloves garlic
 Zest & Juice of half a lime
 1 tbsp sugar
 Salt and Pepper to taste

In a shallow bowl or zip lock bag, add the Siracha/hot sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil.


Grate the fresh peeled garlic cloves directly into the bowl. Zest half a lime, cut it and squeeze its juice into the marinade. Add salt, pepper, and sugar to marinade and stir.


Toss the shrimp into the bowl/bag and gently mix them around with a spoon to coat them well in the marinade. Cover and place the marinated shrimp in the fridge for 15-30 minutes.


Place an egg roll/spring roll wrapper on a cutting board diagonally (diamond shaped) and cut it in half, repeat with the rest of the wrappers.


Place a shrimp on the left side of the wrapper with the tail sticking out and fold over to the left corner, wrapping the shrimp as tightly as you can. Fold the top corner down, covering the top of the shrimp.


Apply a little of the flour paste to the corner of the wrapper as glue to seal it.


In a pan, add about an inch of oil to fry the shrimp (or deep fryer.) Fry in small batches. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.


Dip them out onto a paper towel to soak excess oil. Serve with sweet and spicy dipping sauce!
