Deep-Fried Bean Curd Stuff with minced Fish

1/2 lb Shrimp
1/2 lb Fish fillets
1 Egg white
1/2 ts Salt
6 Bean curd cakes
Oil for deep-frying

Shell and devein shrimp. Mince or grind together with fish.

Add egg white and salt and knead well to blend thoroughly. Divide in 16 parts, forming each into a ball. Then toss each ball hard against a cutting board, or other solid surface, 15 to 20 times. (This will remove the air.)

Cut each bean curd cake diagonally in 4 separate triangles. On one cut surface of each triangle, cut a pocket by starting near the apex and making a slit running 3/4 of the way down. (Do not cut clear through bean curd triangle.)

Stuff a fishball into each slit or pocket, flattening and shaping fish to fit. Meanwhile heat oil.

Add bean curd triangles, a few at a time, and deep-fry until golden (3 to 5 minutes). Drain on paper toweling and serve.
