Thai Shrimp Cakes (ทอดมันกุ้ง)


These fried shrimp cakes represent a tamer alternative to the curried Thai fish cakes (which you’re more likely to see at most Thai restaurants). You can find the recipe for this dish here. Make sure you have a bottle or a batch of homemade Thai sweet chili sauce nearby.

    Shrimp cakes over fish cakes any day. Especially if they’re spicy and limey. The sweet chili sauce tops it off nicely.

    Wonderful! I love shrimp cakes, and I wonder, could you use some finely grated coconut in the coating of these?
