Pork and Prawn Spring Rolls


Spring rolls are easy to make, if you have a spare hour to two. Once you get into the swing of rolling the filling, it can become quite enjoyable - honest!

At £3 a pop for 6 from the supermarket, these infinitely more tasty and delicious spring rolls are a complete bargain! It also good to know you have used top quality ingredients and no MSG.

I like my spring rolls meaty but at the same time zingy - so I incorporate Kaffir Lime Leaf alongside the chilli and lemongrass.

The spring roll wrappers are easy to come by these days (definitely nor worth making!!!) - I have noticed Waitrose and Sainsbury’s occasionally sell them. I prefer to get them from
Thai Smile.

I hope you make these and enjoy Happy

Sesame Prawn Toast


Sesame Prawn Toast are simple to make - if you can make toast you can almost certainly make these!

If you are averse to frying, then place the Sesame Seed topped toast on a lined baking tray and cook for 25 minutes in the oven at gas mark 6.

It is staggering to think of the cost that the supermarkets charge for these delights. I use half a pack of peeled Tiger prawns for the toast, and the remainder goes to the Spring Rolls. (I generally make the two Chinese sides together, so that I only have to clean up once, and rid the house of fried oil smells!). This means for weeks to come, we can pull out a few nibbles from the freezer and chuck in the oven when we get peckish!

Do not buy the small jars of sesame seeds - you will spend a fortune. Instead, pick up a large packet from
Holland and Barrett or other seed and grain health stores.

This recipe requires no cornstarch or MSG, the egg white provides all the binding agent that you will need.

Delicious with a sweet Thai chilli dipping sauce.
