There are many ways for fans to engage with the source material they love, whether it\’s through drawing, gifs, cosplay, or other forms of art. One Genshin Impact player made a unique homage to it by sharing a recipe for crunchy golden shrimp balls. Genshin Impact\’s recipes are an enjoyable part of the game for many, and with this user\’s shrimp balls recipe fans can enjoy a video game treat in real life.
Genshin Impact is an open-world action RPG that lets the player explore, battle, and collect various items, including recipes. Food is obtainable by exploring the open world, and players can hunt, gather wild plants, and buy food through in-game stores. These ingredients can then be combined into meals that may have an effect on the player\’s character, like boosting health or other stats.
Reddit user IssaGrill, who is also a Twitch partner and runs an Instagram focused on making game recipes, posted a video showing how she made the recipe. Genshin Impact\’s version of Golden Shrimp Balls only requires the player to have shrimp and potatoes as their ingredients, but IssaGrill added some extra steps to make the recipe more flavorful. Those wishing to follow her recipe will also need an egg, garlic powder, white pepper, salt, Shaoxing wine, and cornstarch.
The video walks viewers through the process of making the shrimp paste and preparing potatoes so that they lie over the shrimp in strips, adding crunch. She places the finished shrimp balls on green leaves in a circle, surrounding a bowl of Thai chili sauce. This arrangement makes IssaGrill\’s version look a lot like the image of the food in Genshin Impact, although this dish is something viewers can enjoy in real life.
The Golden Shrimp Balls recipe can be obtained in-game via a commission in Genshin Impact\’s Liyue, one of Teyvat\’s seven nations. It can revive a character and restore 400 HP, which may be very useful in certain situations. This makes Golden Shrimp Balls a Guardian Dish, or a healing meal.
This recipe is the favorite meal of Keqing from Genshin Impact, so players wishing to reward their characters with those favorite meals can keep that in mind. People interested in IssaGrill\’s work can follow her to see more meal recreations from Genshin Impact, as well as other popular games.
Genshin Impact is available now on Mobile, PC, and PS4, with PS5 and Switch versions also in development.
