Tomtits Rice-paper rolls
Prep time 30min
Here's a fun easy one where you can set up a creation station and get the kids to make their own roll.
1 pack of rice paper sheets (found in the international section at your local supermarket)
2 cups raw chopped prawns
1 Tsp crushed garlic
1 Tsp butter
Raw fillers (can add any fresh veggies you have)
1 diced cucumber
3 chopped tomatoes
1/2 chopped chilli
1 grated carrot
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts or toasted seeds
2 cups cooked rice noodles or rice vermicelli (optional) - prep as packet recommends
Optional chopped asian herb (coriander or Vietnamese mint)
2 cups shredded silverbeet
1tsp sesame seed oil
2 Tsp mayonnaise (we use Japanese mayo but it can be anything)
1 Tsp soy-sauce
3 Tsp sesame seeds
Peanut dipping sauce
1/2 cup of peanut-butter
2 Tsp soy sauce
2 Tsp sea-some seed oil
2 Tsp warm water
1 Tsp Mayonnaise
1 tsp of chilli sauce (optional)
First step is to make sure you prep all of your fillings to set up your creation station before. Make sure every single ingredient in the rolls is prepared/chopped/cooked before you assembling.
Prepare the dipping sauce: You can whisk everything together in a bowl or use a food processor. Add everything to a medium bowl (except water and optional garnish) and whisk until smooth. Add warm water or until you reach desired thinness. Pop this into a serving bowl.
Prepare the garlic prawns: stir fry garlic prawn ingredients.
Prepare the raw fillings:
Prepare silverbeet coleslaw: Add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl, mix together with a fork ensuring the mayo, oil, soy-sauce, seeds are mixed through. Optional to add chilli for an extra kick. This can be served as a side or added as a filling to the rolls.
Prepare the rice paper rolls: Pour warm water into a large plate (big enough for your rice paper to soak in). Working with one at a time, dip the rice paper wrapper into the warm water for 30 seconds (or whatever the package suggests). You want the wrapper to be soft. Remove from the water and place flat onto a work surface (another plate or chopping board).
Fill the rolls and get your creative juices flowing: This is your chance to create a roll how you like it. Add your fillings and sauces of choice.
Roll them: Roll everything up tightly. To do so, gently pull up the bottom of the roll and roll over the filling. It’s basically like you’re rolling a burrito! Remember, you want a very tight roll.
After rolling each, place on a serving plate. Cut in half, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve with peanut sauce, chilli sauce, soy sauce or mayo.
