Prawn Sang Choy Bow

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Wendys Kitchen

This is a seafood version of the popular Chinese appetizer of minced pork and vegetables wrapped in lettuce leaves. I also do a vegetarian version which I will post when I find that recipe.

This is so tasty! I'm not a fan of pork and this is the perfect alternative. I've made it a few times but I add a little fish sause, ketchap manis and soya - depending what I feel like. Just adds a little more flavour!
