Mango With BC Spot Prawns Spring Rolls


Like most people, most weekends I tend to enjoy having a light and simple brunch at home. It could be having some simple savory tarts, pizza, pasta, or just a couple of spring rolls with my kids. This past weekend, I made my version of Mango With BC Spot Prawns Spring Rolls for brunch. Both the mango and Spot prawns are in season now, so they are very fresh and well priced. I served the spring rolls with some Vietnamese chili lime sauce. Simply divine!


Mango With BC Spot Prawns Spring Rolls
(Printable Recipe)

Ingredients

40 Large BC Spot Prawns, cooked and deveined
2 Large Ripe Mango, peeled, pitted and julienned
1 Packet (100 G) Pea Shoots
1 Small Bunch Basil Leaves, picked
1 Small Bunch Fresh Mint Leaves, picked
1 Head Boston Lettuce, separate leaves
20 Sheets Rice Paper, about 6 inches in diameter

Vietnamese Chili Lime Sauce
5 Thai Bird’s Eye Chilies, chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
4 Tbsp White Sugar
2 Lime, juiced
3 Tbsp Fish Sauce
½ Cup of Warm Water

Method

Chili Lime Sauce: In a small bowl, combine warm water and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolved. Then mix in the chilies, garlic, lime juice and fish sauce.

To make the spring rolls, soften a rice paper by dipping into a pan of water for a few seconds. Lay flat and pat dry with a damp cloth. The rice paper will soften in about 15 seconds. Place 2 prawns in the middle of the prepared rice paper, follow by mango, pea shoots, mint leaves, basil and top with lettuce leaves. Bring one end of the sheet and roll up over the filling and press gently to compact. Serve immediately with the chili lime sauce.

  7. These look really great! I think these are called summer rolls though because spring rolls are deep fried and very similar to egg rolls.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
