Shrimp Fritters

Teri & Jenny
These Shrimp Fritters are crispy on the outside, and soft and fluffy on the side. These delicious savory morsels are paired with a spicy honey drizzle that makes these Shrimp Fritters really irresistible.

  • ¾ pound raw tiger shrimp, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • spicy honey drizzle recipe
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Preheat oil to 350°F.
  • Place shrimp, green onions and garlic into a large mixing bowl and toss together. Set Aside.
  • Pour water into medium pot and add butter and salt and bring to a boil.
  • Once mixture has come to a boil, add flour and quickly stir with a wooden spoon, until dough forms. Continue to stir over medium heat, for about 3 minutes.
  • Place dough into a stand mixer fixed with a paddle attachment and run on medium speed, allowing steam to escape.
  • Once most of the steam has disappeared add the egg, one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
  • Fold pepper into the pate a choux (the doughy/battery mixture).
  • Fold the shrimp mixture into the pate a choux until fully incorporated.
  • Once oil is hot, add tablespoon sized balls of the shrimp mixture into the oil (you’ll have to do this in batches); make sure not to crowd the pan/fryer.
  • Fry each fritter for 4 to 6 minutes, flipping halfway if necessary. Drain on a paper towel and season lightly with salt. Serve immediately with spicy honey drizzle.


Pan frying method (to use less oil): Pan fry the Shrimp Fritters in about 2 inches of oil and just flip them after about 3-4 minute.
