  1. Wash green onions and cilantro then chop fine.
  2. Wash and peel shrimp. Mince to a paste. Add dash of salt/pepper and handful of onion tossed in. Note: I used extra large shrimp, but the option is yours.
  3. Peel the outer layer of the white yam skin and remove. Then shred.
  4. Peel garlic cloves and smash. In a pot, add olive oil and the smashed garlic cloves on high heat until garlic is golden brown.
  5. Then add water. Bring to a boil.
  6. When the water is boiling, add minced shrimp spoon by spoon (or depending how big you want your chunks of shrimp spoon the amount you want). After putting all your minced shrimp meatball, allow the pot to boil again.
