  • FillingIn sauté pan, over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add shrimp and scallops and cook just until translucent. Stir in 3/4 cup of the strained Thai Curry Paste.
  • Scoop about ½ cup potato mixture for each croquette. Press each into disk about 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Portion about 1 tablespoon shrimp mixture into center of each disk.
  • Carefully fold edges over, and form balls or cones, being sure filling is sealed inside potato mixture.
  • BreadingIn large bowl beat eggs until blended. Pour flour into small pan. Pour panko into small pan.
  • Bread croquettes by dipping each first in flour, then in egg, then in panko. Repeat for all croquettes.
