Ingredients for Firecrackers Recipe

  • Egg Noodles peeled and deveined 16

  • Prawns 1 teaspoon

  • Fish sauce 1 tablespoon

  • Salt to taste

  • Wonton wrappers 16

  • Egg noodles soaked in hot water 16

  • Oil to deep fry


Step 1

Place the prawns on their sides and cut two slits through the underbelly of each prawn: the first slit about half an inch from the head, and the other about half an inch from the first slit. This will prevent the prawns from curling while cooking.

Step 2

Mix together the red curry paste, fish sauce and salt in a shallow dish. Add the prawns and mix well to coat with the paste. Cover and leave to marinate for ten minutes. Place each wonton wrapper on a work surface at an angle, so that it forms a diamond, fold the top corner over so that the point is in the centre.

Step 3

Place a prawn, slit side down, on the wrapper, with the tail projecting from the folded end. Fold the bottom corner over the other end of the prawn. Fold the remaining sides of the wrapper over to make a tight roll.

Step 4

Tie a noodle around the roll in a bow. Heat the oil in a wok and deep-fry the prawns till golden brown and cooked through. Drain on absorbent paper.
