How to prepare shrimp fritters
Remove the shells from the shrimps (1), remove the dark thread on the back with the help of a toothpick and cut them into small pieces. Put the flour, grated Parmesan cheese in a bowl and mix. Then add the cold sparkling water and stir until you will have obtained a smooth batter (2). Add the shrimp into small pieces and mix. Take the dough with a spoon and fry a few fritters at a time in a pan with hot oil until golden brown. Drain them with a slotted spoon and lay them on a plate lined with kitchen paper, so as to eliminate excess oil. Your shrimp fritters are ready to be served hot with a pinch of salt (3).
It is advisable to consume the shrimp fritters immediately after preparation. You can still preserve them for a day, but they will lose their crunchiness.
