Now that Thanksgiving has past, we are entering the season of Holiday parties, which depending on how well you get along with your family and co-workers can be a good or a bad thing. But regardless of who will be there, hopefully you can rest assured knowing that there will be plenty of appetizers to go around. And if you are in charge of cooking said appetizers, I suggest giving these a shot. After all how can you go wrong with succulent prawns marinated in sambal oelek, fresh ginger and soy sauce then wrapped up in a wonton wrapper and fried until golden? Answer: You can’t.
I have seen these Firecracker Prawns in many different restaurants over the years but had yet to try them at home. I am not sure why. They are so easy and delicious. I will note that they are a bit on the spicy side because of the sambal oelek chili paste but my friend, who is just now inching her way into the world of spicy food, found them delicious so don’t be afraid. You can cut the spice down a bit by using 1 teaspoon of chili paste. You can also spice it up a bit by using 1 tablespoon of chili paste instead of 2 teaspoons. Either way, holiday party guests are sure to devour them.
Serve with a quick dipping sauce using 3 parts soy sauce, 2 parts rice vinegar and a little garlic powder and enjoy!
