Shrimp Croquettes is a Dutch food recipe mixed with parsley and spices then fried.
  • 3 dl fish stock
  • 50 gr butter
  • 60 gr flour
  • 4 tbsp cream
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 200 gr peeled shrimp
  • flour
  • 1 egg white
  • fine breadcrumbs
  • frying oil
  • curled parsley, finely chopped
  1. Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the flour. Let it cook for about 1 minute. Add the fish stock, stirring constantly, and bring to the boil. Let this thick sauce simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool down a little before stirring in the cream, parsley, lemon juice, nutmeg, pepper and shrimp. Let it set in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  2. Shape the croquettes. Whisk the egg white with 1 tablespoon of water. Pass the croquettes through the flour, then through the egg white and finally through the fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Let the croquettes dry for a moment before passing them for the second time through the eggs and the fine bread crumbs.
  4. Freeze the croquettes until they are needed.
  5. Heat the frying oil and deep-fry the croquettes until they are golden brown. Then drain on kitchen paper.
