* 1 lb shrimp, uncooked, peeled & thawed
* 1 egg white
* 1 tsp garlic chili sauce
* 1 tsp lemongrass
* 1 tsp ginger
* Zest of 1 lime
* 2 Tbsp shallots, minced
* 1/2 cup green onions, finely chopped
* 1 Tbsp cilantro, minced

* 3 Tbsp bbq sauce (asian style)
* Cocktail sauce or asian bbq sauce

Equipment Needed:
1.) Food processor
2.) Citrus zester
3.) Sheet pan
4.) Parchment paper
5.) Food brush

1.) Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2.) Line baking sheet with parchment, set aside.
2.) Make Shrimp Paste: process peeled shrimp in batches, until shrimp is pasty; transfer to large bowl. 
3.) Add egg whites, chili sauce, lemongrass, ginger, lime, shallots, green onions, cilantro, and salt. 
4.) Mix until well-combined.
5.) Form shrimp paste into small balls, 1" in diameter; arrange in single layer on baking sheet.
