Shrimp Suman (Shrimp Cakes)

I called this recipe shrimp suman because traditionally it is being wrap with banana leaves like suman but since it’s very hard to find banana leaves here in Kuwait,I wrapped it with aluminum foil and it tasted almost the same.

1 cup shrimp, ground or mashed
1 cup dessicated coconut ( freshly grated coconut taste better)
1 tbsp. tomato paste
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 small tomato, finely chopped
1/4 tsp. ginger powder
1/4 cup shrimp broth
1 small size onions, minced
1 stalk of green onions, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

1. Mix all the ingredients together.
2. Scoop 1 tbsp. out of the mixture and flat it in a 7×7 inches aluminum foil, the flattened batter should be around 2×3 inches size. Wrap carefully. Repeat this procedure until all the batter are done.
3. Bake in a preheated 250o oven for 15 minutes.

Usually yields 10 pcs.
