Firecracker Prawn Roll

Being an Asian, making spring rolls has always been a regular cooking activity at home. There’s nothing complicated in making them, perhaps the only part you’ll need a little practice is wrapping them nicely. When I came across these Firecracker Prawn Rolls from The Woks of Life, I was eager to try them. They are whole deshelled prawns marinated with a spicy chilli dressing and wrapped individually with spring roll wrappers. Because of their shape and color, they do resemble Chinese firecrackers, minus the explosion...

Claypot Seafood Noodles (Claypot Seafood Yee Mee)

There is something about claypot stewed noodles that is just so grounded, aromatic and inviting.

Crispy Thai Shrimp Cake

This Crispy Thai Shrimp Cake is yet another crowd-pleasing appetizer and my favorite item to order whenever we are at Thai restaurants. This version requires no corn starch or flour so it is important to use the freshest prawns / shrimps you could get your hands on. The trick to achieving the “QQ” or bouncy effect with every bite is to “grab and slam” the prawn mixture against the bowl for several times...
