Paper Wrapped Prawns (Shrimps) Recipe

Paper Wrapped Prawns (Shrimps) Recipes

Ingredients :

15-20 rice paper wrappers

350g raw prawn meat

4 cm piece fresh ginger, grated

2 cloves garlic, crushed

3 spring onions, finely chopped

1 tbsp rice flour

1 egg white, beaten

2 tsp sesame oil

salt and pepper, to taste

2 tbsp cornflour

6 tsp water

oil, for deep frying

2 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted

Method :

Place 4 rice paper wrappers on a work surface. Brush generously with water to moisten; allow to stand for 2 minutes or until soft and pliable. Gently transfer to a plate (they must be stacked on top of each other at this stage). Cover with plastic wrap and repeat with remaining wrappers. Finely chop the prawn meat; combine with the ginger, garlic, spring onions, rice flour, egg white, sesame oil and salt and pepper. Mix very well with your fingertips. Blend the cornflour and water. Working with one wrapper at a time, spread 1 tbsp of prawn mixture across the wrapper just below the centre.

Fold up the bottom section of the wrapper to encase the filling. Roll wrapper over once, lightly pushing down to flatten out filling. Fold in sides and brush edges with cornflour mixture, then wrap to form a parcel. Put on double thickness paper towels and repeat with remaining wrappers and filling. Heat 2-3 cm oil in a deep pan; add several parcels and cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and repeat with remainder. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with plum sauce, if desired.

Makes 12 parcels
