Recipe by I'mPat
From James Reeson Alive and Cooking. This looks to be a nice appertizer or even an entree. James Reason also made these as triangles in a later show, adding the instructions at the end of recipe but did not serve with the dipping sauce.
- 250 g prawns (raw flesh)
- 2 eggs
- 150 g rice flour
- 6 spring onions (scallions, roughly chopped)
- 6 sheets phyllo pastry
- 100 g butter (melted)
- 1⁄2 cup chives (chopped)
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons green olive tapenade

- Preheat oven to 200°C.
- Place the prawns into a blender and pulse and then add the chives and spring onions and give another quick pulse and then add the eggs and pulse again this time until smooth.
- Place the mousse into a mixing bowl, add the rice flour and stir through.
- Lay out a sheet of filo pastry, using a pastry brush, liberally coat the pastry with the melted butter and then place another filo sheet on top and brush with butter and then cut the buttered sheets in half.
- Spoon 1/3 of the prawn mix into the centre and smear over 1/2 of the sheet diagonally and roll up into a spring roll shape.
