Red Snapper Fritters with White Beans and Red Curry Paste

Red Snapper Fritters with White Beans and Red Curry PasteMaking fish fritters is a delicate task because they tend to break if not made correctly. Although red snapper's meat is quite firm, the minced form of any fish is quite delicate when deep fried with a batter. Today's fish fritters are spicy and crispy at the same time. To increase the number of servings, I've used white beans as a base. You can use a different base provided it blends well with the fish mince. To prepare a milder version of these fritters, replace red curry paste with simple red chilies soaked in water overnight. Use of select herbs gives these fritters a unique taste and helps in digestion too. You can use a local fish instead of red snapper provided it is fresh and odorless. Let's make it now!
