Ground veal, or beef. Lamb will be overpowering for the shrimp, and chicken is too lean.

I used ground chicken thighs in mapo tofu and it was great. The thighs are much moister than the breasts.

I also use ground chicken thighs as a ground pork replacement for dumplings.

Ground chicken thighs have just enough fat to keep things moist. My mom uses this too.
