Golden Bread Shrimp Rolls

This recipe has been with me for 19 years. I was asked to prepare a dish in the final day of my secondary school cooking class. At that young age, I knew nothing about cooking, let alone came out with a recipe. Thus, this recipe was courtesy of my mom. I recalled I really enjoyed the cooking class but have completely no idea how I ended out in that class (Maybe we have an option of cooking or sewing?). Anyway, Janet, if you are reading this, do you still remember? I remembered we made yam ring together because you were my partner. I think you helped me cooked this dish too because I remembered you mixing the shrimps with curry powder? Correct me if I'm wrong! It is ages ago!

Recipe is posted at I posted this recipe in 1999 when was just launched. I received a very negative review in 2003 and I was telling myself, I can't believe she ruined this for me. Come on, who is going to try a recipe with a one star rating, at least I won't. Then, recently I found out I got another review and it was 5 stars!! How happy that made me and kudo to him to give this one star recipe a try and loved it! So, calling all readers, if you tried this recipe of mine and loved it and is a member of, PLEASEEEE go and give me a good review okay? Preferably 4 stars and above a little love or support for me leh. *so thick face*

Okay, I took the trouble to snap step-by-step pictures here. This recipe is very easy and you should have all the ingredients at home. I made this again because I want to post a picture at Allrecipe with the intention to entice or seduce more people to give this a try. :P Please do go to allrecipes for the complete recipe.

I like the step by step picture.. and the Shrimp looks yummy to me.. not sure why ppl give 1 star. I am very tempting to try but i just hate deep frying in my kitchen. Actually i hate the clean up work not the deep fry part hee..

YES. You have convinced me to try it out though I have promised myself not to do deep-frying!!! I like the taste of deep=fried bread. :O

Did you have an option of cooking or sewing? We had to do both in sec school and sewing classes always bring me nightmares the day before.

Looks good to me! I don't believe in those ratings cos everyone has their own individual taste, shall try this out when I've got time :)

SteamyKitchen said...

How beautiful....I never would have thought to wrap the bread around the shrimp. I've had shrimp toasts, but this is such a genius way to prepare!

This is a definite must try for me....

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi V,
Yeah..because I don't want to waste the onion. LOL!

Thanks! Do let me know if you like it.

She thought the bread was too oily. I'm not sure whether she flatten the bread first or not.

Hooray! I have convinced you! Feedback to me ya!

Hmm...I don't remember me sewing anything, so I guess I did have an option. LOL!

Hi Lin,
Oh thanks, hope you will like it!

Thanks! Do let me know how it turned out for you ya! :)

This is a great appetizer and I strongly ask people to try it out. When I was young, I remembered my family would order a similar appetizer like yours from a restaurant. We (especially the kids) love it very much! The only difference is that the restaurant didn't wrap the shrimp with bread. Somehow, they sticked the shrimp on top of a bread and deep fried it. I am going to try your recipe if I have time. Thanks for sharing!

Baking Fiend said...

I don't have the yam ring recipe lah because it was my teacher recipe and it has been 19 years, I didn't even recall what I put in the yam before deep-frying. But, I found a recipe here, you can try hers if you like.

Thanks Isha! You are so kind! :)

Rasa Malaysia said...

The only thing that I don't like about this recipe is that the bread tends to soak up the oil...other than that, it's shrimp, so what's there not to like. ;)

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi Rasa Malaysia,
Thanks for dropping by again! :) Yes, that tends to happen to all the deep-fry bread related recipe. Like a cushion for oil so cannot eat this too often.

food makes me happy said...

Thanks for sharing the recipe,
It looks great!

I'm totally intrigued. Does this recipe have a heritage?

Anonymous said...

Sorry if this gets posted twice - my computer fritzed and I'm not sure if it went through.

Just wanted to say real quick that I found your blog through TasteSpotting and I think these look super tasty! I am going to have to try these.

I also clicked through to the allrecipes link and had to say I laughed at loud at the one-star reviewer, who was basically like, "So I significantly altered a major ingredient in this recipe and realize this but my version sucked so this recipe does too!"

Little Corner of Mine said...

You're welcome Cindy and thanks!

Marc, I'm not sure but it has been in Malaysian households for a long time.

Hi Melanie, you just posted it once actually. :) Yeah, I think it's best to use the cheap store brand fresh white bread and roll the bread really thin for best result. Hope you like this crispy treat! ;)
