INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 10 shelled and deveined shrimp
- 5 slices white bread, cut in half
- 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
- 6 leaves lettuce
In a medium size bowl combine the shrimp, onion, curry powder, and salt and pepper. Marinate for 30 minutes.
Lay the flattened the white bread on a level surface. Place one marinated shrimp and some onion onto the bread. Roll the bread so that the shrimp and onion are held in the middle of the bread with the tail sticking out of one end. Seal the edges of the roll closed with the beaten egg. Continue this process with each shrimp.
Pour enough vegetable oil in a large skillet to cover the shrimp rolls. Heat the oil over a medium heat. Oil is ready for frying when bubbles begin to rise. Place a few shrimp rolls in the oil at a time. Fry until the bread turns a golden brown color. Drain on a paper towel and serve on a plate of lettuce.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
