Fun Finger Food? How About Wrapping Prawns in Noodles!
  • Kids love to hear that crunch on their food (no kids refuses crispy fried chicken, right?). So if you want them to try prawns, a secret can be to add cruunch. Egg noodles should do the trick here. Wrap noodles around prawns before deep-frying them and viola!  Oh, yes, grown-ups can get a kick out of this, too. 

    Prep Time 30 minutes
    Cooking Time 15 minutes
    Yield 4 servings

    Here's what you'll need: 
    20 pieces medium prawns, shelled and deveined with tails left on
    4 pieces calamansi, juiced
    1 teaspoon liquid seasoning
    salt and pepper, to season
    50 grams dried chinese egg noodles
    oil, for deep-frying
    sweet chili sauce, for dipping

    Make it!

    Mix prawns with calamansi juice, liquid seasoning, salt, and pepper. Marinate for 15 minutes.

    2 Cook egg noodles according to package directions. Drain. Straighten out the noodles and lay flat on a tray; let cool.

    3 Take two long strands of noodles and wrap them around a prawn, tucking the ends in. Lay the wrapped prawn flat on a plate, noodle-end side down. Repeat with remaining prawns. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to help the noodles stick together and to prevent them from unraveling when frying.

    4 Heat a deep pan with enough oil for deep-frying. Fry the prawns in batches just until noodles are lightly golden and crispy. Drain on paper towels.

    5 Arrange prawns on a platter and serve with sweet chili sauce.
