How’s that for a new take on the tongue twister ‘She sells sea shells by the seashore’. This box of ready-to-cook shrimp chips was one of my discoveries at an ethnic food shop in Milan. God how I love that city. You can find just about any exotic ingredient you might need, or at least think you might need, as in these prawn-flavored crackers. At chinese restaurants over here they’re called nuvole/nuvolette di drago (dragon clouds/little dragon clouds) and they usually come served as a starter.
Turning them into light and airy “clouds” is easy. You place a few into very hot oil and POOF!
