Dried shrimp muscle was ground and blended with corn flour at the level of 20% (w:w). The shrimp-corn flour mix was extruded through a co-rotating twin-screw extruder with a screw diameter of 24 mm. The effects of extrusion temperature (110-150 °C), screw speed (200-500 rpm) and feed moisture (17-23 g/100 g) on physicochemical and sensory properties of shrimp-corn snack were investigated using response surface methodology. The extrusion temperature had a significant (P≤0.05) influence on hardness, omega-3 fatty acids content and sensory properties of shrimp-corn snack. Increasing extrusion temperature from 110 °C to 150 °C, resulted in a snack with higher hardness and lower omega-3 content. While higher overall acceptance scores were obtained at moderate temperature (130 °C), higher omega-3 contents were obtained at lower temperatures combined with higher feed moistures. Predicted optimum condition for extruded shrimp-corn snack production was follows; extrusion temperature: 127.2 ºC, screw speed: 393.4 rpm, feed moisture: 21.6 g/100 g.
