This is nothing like a Cafe du Monde Beignet. These little fried nuggets have the great taste of Gulf Shrimp. They are served with a sauce to dip them in. My first choice would be a Remoulade sauce.

2 cups Flour

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon ground Ginger

1/4 cup Pimentos, diced

1 tablespoon Garlic, minced

1 teaspoon Creole Seasoning

4 Green Onions, chopped

1 1/2 cups cooked Gulf Shrimp, peeled and deveined

3 tablespoons fresh Parsley, chopped

3 dashes Hot Sauce


Preheat deep fryer to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients together. Add other ingredients except water and hot sauce. Mix well. Add water and hot sauce, but just enough to form a loose dough, Set aside 15 minutes to rest.

To Fry.

Spoon in dough, golf ball size, into the oil. Cook until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve warm.
