Chop the shrimp and pound to a smooth paste. Season the paste with salt, a little sesame oil and finely chopped green onions and then knead well to mix.

Bind the paste with egg whites and a little corn flour and then mash for 1-2 minutes. Form into balls and fry in oil until golden brown.
Note: You may choose to leave shrimp slightly lumpy and flatten into cakes. You can also add minced red and yellow peppers for some color and added flavor. The original has a slight oriental infusion, which is a little different.
