Asian Prawns with Avocado Nori Wrap

Asian Prawns with Avocado Nori Wrap

Cook 10 prawns gently in a little rapeseed oil and allow them to cool. Once cooled, cut the prawns in half length ways. Peel and deseed a ripe avocado and thinly slice. Thinly slice a carrot and a cucumber into thin ribbons. Cut a ripe mango into thin slices.

The Nori wrap (which is toasted algae), is best prepared by gently heating over a pop up toaster, releasing all the flavours. It only needs a couple of minutes. If the Nori turns light green you have overcooked it.

Place the Nori sheaths flat on a wooden board. Sprinkle a little chopped mint on the Nori and then place 1 prawn, halved with a ribbon of carrot and cucumber. Add a thin slice of avocado and some mango and wrap all the ingredients in the Nori. Seal the wrap using a little hot water.

For the Asian dip

Combine 2tsp of grated ginger with 2tbsp of chilli sauce, juice from half a lime and 2tsp of fish sauce.
Place in small bowls for dipping the Nori rolls.

This dip goes very well with a verity of Asian dishes so feel free to experiment to summer salads enhancing flavours.
