Default Deep Fried Shrimp Balls

1 lb Shrimp, cleaned & deveined
2 Bacon strips
4 Water chestnuts
1/2 md Onion
1 Egg, beaten
2 tb Corn starch
Oil for deep frying

1. Mince shrimp, bacon, onion or water chestnuts together until fine.
Place mixture in bowl. Remove crusts from bread. Dice bread into very
fine cubes. Place cubes in shrimp mixture. Add salt, pepper, egg and 2
tablespoons corn starch to mixture. Combine thoroughly.

2. Fill deep fryer or wok halfway up with oil. Heat oil on highest heat
setting. When you think oil is sufficiently heated, test the
temperature of it with a small piece of bread crust. If it fries to a
golden brown colour, then oil is ready for deep frying. If bread crust
fails to brown readily, then oil is not ready yet. If bread crust fries
to a dark brown, then oil is too hot. Shut heat off of wok, allow oil
to cool 5 minutes before turning heat on again. Retest oil with bread
crust to see if it is of proper temperature.

3. When oil is ready for deep frying, take 2 teaspoons, dip into
shrimp mixture and form a 1" diameter ball. Drop ball into hot oil,
Place about 8 balls into the hot oil. Allow each ball to deep fry 3
minutes. Turn balls so that each will fry to a golden brown colour.
Remove balls to paper toweling to drain excess oil from them. Repeat
procedure for deep frying rest of shrimp mixture until all of the
mixture is used up. Place shrimp balls on a serving platter. Garnish
with parsley or other raw vegetable.
