Nutritional values

The shrimp balls contain a concentrated load of protein, iodine and zinc - which is good for the immune system, among other things. The aromatic-hot ginger stimulates the appetite and circulation and also strengthens the immune system.

You are still newcomers at the stove and don't dare to touch the balls? Then take it easy and cook the prawns just like that in the soup. Leave out the bacon and egg in this case; ginger and spring onions should be boiled up with the broth.
