Need a unique appetizer for your Christmas or New Year’s party….????

Tired of the same old appetizers….try this great recipe for “Fried Puffs with Shrimp and Lavender”!   The exotic flavor of these appetizers is a culinary delight!

  • 4 Tbl. Butter
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 c. cooked shrimp or crab meat
  • pinch of cayenne
  • pinch of ground lavender

Bring water and butter to boil in a small saucepan.  Add flour all at once stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon.  When the dough ball forms, remove from heat, stir for 30 seconds, add one egg at a time, stir to combine.  The batter should be very thick and sticky.

Add the cilantro, shrimp, cayenne and lavender, mix well.

Heat the oil in a deep pan or a wok until a test morsel sizzles rapidly and stays on the surface.   Wearing oven mitts, scoop small amounts of dough with a spoon and carefully place in hot oil.  They will couble in size.  Turn them over using bamboo skewers or long chopsticks.  Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain.  Serve immediately or keep hot in a single layer in a 250F oven for up to 2 hours.

Caution: hot oil can splatter!
