I’ve been trying different shrimp recipes, and this one by nicky everyday meal definitely stood out. It’s the best fried shrimp balls I have ever tasted. The outside is so crispy, and it’s well-seasoned. Dip it in the sauce, and you have the perfect appetizer and snack. This finger food is just so good – you won’t stop eating it until there is nothing left.
