Fried Shrimp Balls

I have one big bag of tiger prawns left over which supposed to cook for the CNY dinner but due to I have been unwell, I have not done any cooking since.

Well, instead of cooking my usual sweet and sour prawns or sambal prawns, I have chosen to use Nami's Fried Shrimp Balls again because I just love the crisp of the fried panko.
