Krill, also known as shrimp fry and minute shrimp, are small crustaceans that are widely used in Asian cuisine. It is particularly prized in China, Japan, and the Phillipines. Krill can be added to a wide variety of foods and is very popular in stir-frys, soups, and sauces.
Uses: Wash shrimp fry in several changes of water and drain well. Sauté them with aromatics such as garlic, ginger, and chili in a generous amount of oil until fragrant before deglazing with stock or water. Use this flavorful mixture as a base or filling for your favorite dishes such as xo sauce, fried rice, or omelettes.
