Can anyone identify this Thai appetiser?

The other day I picked up a package of thin dried tofu sheets and went about hunting for recipes using it when I came across this unidentified photo on the internet.

It instantly reminded me of an appetiser I had at a Thai restaurant about 20 years (!!!) ago. (It obviously left a strong impression!) I seem to recall it had ground pork and maybe a bit of minced shrimp/prawn with very silky texture with a slightly crispy shell. The dipping sauce was slightly sweet and sour, just thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

The picture looks similar to what I remember of the dish, and like it might have been steamed and then fried. I’ve never used tofu skin before and don’t know what it looks like cooked, but in the photothe casing looks like it might be too thin to be tofu skin.

Does anyone know what this is, and do you have a recipe? It’s driving me crazy!
