Okoy or Ukoy Pinoy Shrimp Fried Patties

This is a great complete meal dish! Easy to prepare and will surely please everybody!


1/4 kilo of bean sprouts (toge)

1/4 kilo of prawns (shelled, tails and head removed)

half a block of big tofu (or three pieces of small tofu) cut in cubes

1 onion sliced

half a cup of flour

1 egg

half a glass of water

half a teaspoon of salt

cooking oil for deep frying


This recipe is my auntie’s version of this delicious recipe. In a bowl mix the flour, egg, salt and water. Add the bean sprouts mix well. Get your deep frying casserole and pour the cooking oil. Let it heat up well. Get a small saucer and place about two to three spoonful of your bean sprout-flour mixture. Flatten them with a back of a spoon to have a nice round shape of about 2cms thickness. Decorate the top with a prawn (if you are using small shrimps you need to put at least three pieces) and some cut tofu. Sliced this gently on your hot oil and cook both sides until golden brown. You will need to prepare a vinegar with some chopped chilis and garlic as a sauce for this recipe.
