READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by twissis

Here's another recipe from the *Best Seafood Recipes* cookbook of the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook series. I esp like multi-purpose recipes & this 1 got my attention for its versatility ... perfect for a brunch item, luncheon entree & starter course when served warm w/my Shrimp Butter ... or at rm temp on a finger-food appy nite! Time does not include time to cook & cool the rice & prawns. *Enjoy*

Top Review by Susang

Just finished making these and eating them. I halved the recipe for my husband and I. Followed it exactly as written. Very quick to put together and delicious. I agree with Mrs. Goodall that you could fiddle with this and add other spices. I used Old Bay, but thought even some tabasco would be a nice twist. As I was enjoying them, I thought that minced clams would make this a great clam fritter. Will definately be making this again. I made cocktail sauce #26420 to serve with this also.
