      3/4  cup           dehydrated shrimp (found in Asian or
                         Mexican markets)
    2      cups          bread crumbs or

      1/4  teaspoon      salt
                         vegetable oil for frying
 *To make tortilla crumbs, dry tortillas ( about 12) in an oven on low
 heat until crisp.  Grind up in a food processor or blender.
 Mix dried shrimps, bread crumbs and in a blender or processor
 container.  Process until the shrimps are ground up and well blended
 with crumbs.  Empty into a bowl, and add eggs, 1 at a time, until you
 have a batter the consistency of a cooked oatmeal. 
 Heat enough oil in a skillet to about a depth of 1/4".  Put a
 tablespoonful of batter in the oil for each fritter, and fry til golden,
 turning once.
