    Do you use fresh shrimp? Or frozen? dried? I want to try cooking shrimp, but I’ve never cooked it before!
    Thanks for the radish cake recipe – it looks cool!

      for the radish cake, I used dry shrimp. That’s what the conventional radish cake would call for, never used fresh or frozen shrimp. let me know f you try it! 🙂
