Without a question, one of everyone’s favourite items to be used in cooking is shrimp. They fit into a ton of recipes, from elegant side dishes and special occasion romance meals to party appetisers and informal weeknight dinners, plus they cook so quickly, are very practical (you can switch in frozen for pretty much any of these recipes). 

Crispy on the outside and fluffy and light on the inside, these shrimp fritters are delicious. These mouthwateringly savoury bites are made even more delectable by the addition of a fiery honey drizzle. These incredibly wonderful and summery fritters are made by poaching juicy shrimp in lemon water, coating them in a batter made of rice flour, then deep-frying them until they are the ideal shade of golden brown. The rice flour produces an incredibly crisp coating while also naturally making this meal gluten-free.

You can have everything you desire in a tasty, flavourful snack with these shrimp fritters. The fritters are simple to make and take little time to put together. You receive a crisp outside and a delicate, fluffy inside in every bite.

Shrimp are a great source of protein, low in saturated fat, and packed with necessary amino acids. Shrimp gained a negative reputation for having a lot of cholesterol in the 1990s. However, studies have demonstrated that the type of dietary cholesterol they really contain does in fact reduce cholesterol levels: According to research, shrimp actually have a beneficial impact by lowering triglyceride levels rather than raising total cholesterol levels. Shrimp contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities, according to new research.

    Heat the oil to 350°F. 

    Add and toss together the shrimp, green onions, and garlic in a large mixing bowl or container and set aside

    Add salt and butter to a medium saucepan of water, then heat to a boil

    Once the fluid has reached a boil, add the flour and stir vigorously, until dough forms. 

    On medium heat, whisk the mixture continuously for about 3 minutes

    Put the dough in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, turn the machine on medium speed, and let the steam out

    Add the eggs one at a time once the majority of the steam has dissipated, scraping the bowl’s sides between additions

    The the doughy/batter mixture should be seasoned with pepper

    Fold the shrimp mixture into the batter mixture until completely combined

    Don’t overcrowd the pan/fryer when adding tablespoon-sized balls of the shrimp mixture to the heated oil (you'll need to do this in batches)

    Cook each fritter for 4 to 6 minutes, turning if necessary at the halfway point. 

    Drain on paper towels, then sprinkle with a little salt. 

    Serve immediately with a bit of honey.
