Ground pork and minced shrimp combine to make a tasty appetizer and are fantastic in soup!

Start with shrimp

Start with shrimp and chop them by hand, a food processor will turn them to mush…and you don’t want that. Chop some scallions and mix this with ground pork, and egg white, and spices for an easy treat.

I love these tasty pork and shrimp meatballs in my cabbage soup (GET THE CABBAGE SOUP RECIPE HERE)  or as a tasty party appetizer. You could even stuff the meatball mixture into a wonton and steam or fry them. Serve with a little sweet chili sauce and you’re good to go.
