  • 2 medium-sized potatoes (Yukon Gold or Russet), peeled and sliced into thin chips
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 250 grams shrimp paste
  • 1/2 cup peeled sweet corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup carrots, finely chopped (brunoise)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • Toothpicks for securing
  • Cooking oil for greasing

Serving size:

This recipe makes approximately 16-20 pieces of Crispy Shrimp and Potato Bites, suitable for 4 servings as an appetizer.

Step 1: Prepare the Potato Base

  • Peel and slice the potatoes into chips. Ensure the slices are neither too thick nor too thin, as they will serve as the base for the shrimp paste.
  • Sprinkle salt evenly over the potato slices and let them sit for about 10 minutes to absorb the salt.
  • After the potato slices have absorbed the salt, place them in a bowl of water and allow them to soak until they soften, approximately 10-15 minutes.

Step 2: Prepare the Shrimp Paste Filling

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the shrimp paste, peeled sweet corn kernels, finely chopped carrots, and black pepper. Mix well to ensure the ingredients are evenly distributed.

Step 3: Assemble the Bites

  • Once the potato slices are soft enough to bend without breaking, take one slice and place a spoonful of the shrimp paste mixture in the center.
  • Shape the potato slice into a U-shape, encasing the shrimp paste in the middle.
  • Secure the shape with a toothpick, piercing it through the middle to hold everything together.

Step 4: Fry the Bites

  • Lightly grease the assembled shrimp and potato bites with cooking oil.
  • Place them in an air fryer basket in a single layer, ensuring they do not overlap.
  • Set the air fryer to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) and cook for 15 minutes, or until the potato is crispy and the shrimp filling is cooked through.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy

  • Once cooked, carefully remove the toothpicks from the bites.
  • Sprinkle with chili powder and dried parsley flakes for an added kick of flavor and a touch of color.
  • Serve the bites warm and enjoy the delightful combination of crispy potato and savory shrimp paste.

These Crispy Shrimp and Potato Bites are sure to be a hit at any gathering, offering a perfect balance of flavors and textures that are both satisfying and irresistible.
