Chinese shrimp balls make a delicious appetizer. The shrimp balls are nicely seasoned and have water chestnuts added for some crunch. They are sure to please your guests, whether set out on an appetizer buffet or passed. You can choose the dipping sauce to accompany them. Some people like sweet and sour sauce, cocktail sauce, or spicy chinese mustard sauce. An advantage of this recipe is that it can be prepared gluten-free as long as you use gluten-free soy sauce and gluten-free cornstarch. If you like breading or a crunchier coating, variations are provided. However, they would not usually be gluten-free.
