Prawn Crackers

These are a popular addition to many Chinese and other Far Eastern dishes and are often served before guests come to the table. Freshly cooked prawn crackers are more delicious than the ready-to-eat variety.

ingredients

serves 4 - 6
300 ml (2 pint) 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
50 g (2 oz) uncooked prawn crackers
fine table salt, to serve

method

1. Line a tray with kitchen paper.

2. Heat the oil in a large wok until it begins to smoke. Reduce the heat to maintain a steady temperature. Drop 3 or 4 prawn crackers into the oil.

3. After they swell up, remove them from the oil almost immediately before they start to colour. Transfer to the paper-lined tray to drain. Serve sprinkled with salt.
