To^m Chie^n Ta^y Ho^` - Shrimps & Sweet Potato Fritters

Since I have some veggies and herbs left, I like to finish them up.  How am I going to do that? I have some sweet potato at home with some shrimps. Then I decided to make Shrimps and Sweet Potato Fritters.  Actually, these are great for snacks but can be quite filling for dinner or eaten anytime of the day.  Check them out.

They are crunchy and the sweet potato just make it so much better.
 I toasted them up before we eat them since I love the crunchy texture.
 Once you wrap them in summer herbs and lettuce and dip them in the fish sauce, it's like you're in heaven.  They are out of this world. Yummy!
