Prawn Choux Balls is one of the dishes I am known for and is pretty easy to make too. The dish, however, takes quite some time for the preparation part. Just check out the recipe of the rich and flavorsome Prawn Choux Balls.
For pastry
  Plain flour 2 1⁄2 Ounce (65 Grams Or 3/4 Cup)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Butter 1 Ounce (25 Gram/2 Tablespoon)
  Water 1⁄4 Pint (2/3 Cup Or 150 Milliliter)
  Egg 1 , beaten
For filling
  Mayonnaise 60 Milliliter (4 Tablespoon)
  Cayenne 1 Pinch
  Anchovy essence 1 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Double cream 1⁄4 Pint (150 Milliliter / 2/3 Cup)

Sift the flour and salt on to a sheet of greaseproof (waxed) paper.
Place it next to the hob so it is ready to use later.
Heat the butter and water in a pan until the butter melts, then bring to the boil.
Add the flour all in one go and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth and leaves the sides of the pan clean.
Remove from the heat.
Beat for 1 minute to cool, then gradually beat in the egg, beating well after each addition until the mixture is smooth and glossy but still holds its shape.
Spoon into 30 small balls on a greased baking (cookie) sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 220°C/425°F/ gas mark 7 for 7 minutes.
Reduce the heat to 190°C/ 375°F/gas mark 5 and cook for a further 15 minutes until golden brown and crisp.
Cool on a wire rack.
Mix the prawns with the mayonnaise and seasonings.
Whip the cream until peaking and fold into the mixture with a metal spoon.
Make a small slit in the side of each choux ball and spoon the mixture inside.
