Total Time: 2 hours

Serves: 8


  • For the shrimps
  • 500 gram shrimp, peeled and deveined, leave the tail intact
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 cup corn starch
  • oil for deep frying
  • For the mayonnaise sauce
  • 150 gram mayonnaise (about 8 tablespoon)
  • 4 tablespoon sweet condensed milk (Indonesian: susu kental manis)
  • 2 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seed


  • For the shrimps
    1. Marinate the shrimp with lime juice and salt for 15 minutes.
    2. Heat enough oil for deep frying, coat shrimp with egg white followed by corn starch, then deep fry until pink, around 1-2 minutes, remove and drain on paper towel to absorb excess oil. Tips: shrimps cook really fast, so pick them up as soon as they turn pink to get the desired crunchy texture. Overcooked shrimps have chewy texture, not a desirable result.
  • For the mayonnaise sauce
    1. Mix all sauce ingredients together. Lightly toss the fried shrimps with the mayonnaise sauce and serve immediately.
