The 2nd paragraph of the directions for these shrimp boulettes does not make sense. Do you mean to coat the shrimp mixture with the egg and flour batter?

When are the shrimp put in. Recipe says to pulse shrimp all together with potato and onion. Then later it says to fold shrimp into mixture and season with salt and pepper. Please clarify.
