About this recipe: These prawn balls are juicy and full of flavour. They are a little bit like Chinese prawn dumplings without the skin. They're simple to make and taste fantastic. Serve them as a side dish with freshly cooked rice.
The prawns need to be chopped, but not pureed, you want a some texture. I find the easiest way is to chop them using a very sharp knife or blitzing them in a food processor, but be careful not to over-process them.
Try not to omit the sugar in the recipe. The resulting prawn balls will not be sweet. It will merely enhance the prawn flavour.
A perfect starter for those who like prawns. - 15 Aug 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. Added two cloves of garlic and a half inch of ginger (finely chopped). No sugar, seasoned with salt. Also, as I had no sesame oil, just added a teaspoon of whole sesame seeds instead. - 15 Aug 2010
