Crab, Prawn & Ginger Spring Rolls
|Cooking oil||1 Teaspoon|
|Crab meat||2 Tablespoon|
|Fresh coriander||1⁄2 Tablespoon|
|Fresh ginger||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Spring roll pastry sheets||4|
|Lemon juice||1 Tablespoon (1 Squeeze)|
|Sesame oil||4 Drop|
Finely slice the vegetables into a julienne (thin strips) and fry quickly in a very hot wok with a little cooking oil.
Add the ginger, coriander, crab meat, sesame oil and prawns, and season to taste with salt, pepper & a squeeze of lemon, remove from heat.
Cut the spring roll pastry into quarters, "glue" two quarters together on top of each other using egg whites as the adhesive.
Place a small amount of the cooked mixture on one end of the spring roll pastry, fold the sides over (see below) and roll up using a bit of egg white to stick the end down.
Allow the uncooked spring rolls to rest in the fridge for at least 1/2 hr before cooking.
Just before serving, deep-fry the spring rolls in clean hot oil until golden brown & crispy.
