Prawn Rissoles

This is another my successful effort to recreate the taste of a wonderful prawn recipe, which I tasted years back in Goa (India). I thought its really a great choice for me to publish an international dish as my 200th Recipe ….. Rissoles, also known as rissóis, is a deep fried Portuguese snack preparation, using breaded fish or shrimp. Can be a great starter option for parties and family events, when served with ketchup or tomato sauce.
