Rice noodle sheets are available from Asian grocers. Make sure the noodles are fresh and haven’t been refrigerated otherwise they’ll crack when rolled.
- 600 gm medium green prawns, peeled, coarsely chopped
- ¼ cup coriander, coarsely chopped, plus extra to serve (loosely packed)
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 10 gm ginger, finely chopped (2cm piece)
- 250 gm fresh rice noodle sheets, cut into 12cm x 8cm rectangles
- To serve: thinly sliced spring onion, thinly sliced red chillies and steamed Asian greens
Chilli, soy and garlic dressing
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp kecap manis
- 2 tbsp black Chinese vinegar
- 1 red birdseye chilli, thinly sliced
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp coriander, finely chopped (firmly packed)
- 1Combine prawn, coriander, garlic and ginger in a large bowl and season with salt to taste. Place rice noodle sheets on a work surface, then place a little prawn mixture along the long edge and roll to form a long cylinder. Repeat with remaining sheets. Steam rolls in batches placed on baking paper in a bamboo steamer over simmering water until cooked through (4-5 minutes).
- 2Meanwhile, for chilli, soy and garlic dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl. Serve steamed prawn rice noodle rolls scattered with chopped coriander, sliced spring onion and chilli, with steamed Asian greens and chilli, soy and garlic dressing to the side.
