DIRECTIONS

  • Method for Dumplings.
  • Remove skin and bones from fish. Add to Egg white and process until minced.
  • Place in bowl with crab and prawn meat.
  • In a pan, heat sesame oil to medium and sauté curry paste, lemongrass, lime leaves, ginger and chilli to ignite flavours.
  • Add to fish with fish sauce, noodles and coriander.
  • Take spoonfuls of the mixture and drop into pan of hot oil (shallow fry), making sure there are pieces of noodle hanging roughly out- they will become crisp while the centre stays soft.
  • Cook on all sides until brown.
  • Drain on kitchen towel.
  • Method for Pesto.
  • Place all ingredients (except oils) into a blender or food processor.
  • Give it a burst of power, and then drizzle in the oils until it becomes roughly emulsified.
