Ready In:


  • 500 g prawns (raw peeled deveined and finely chopped)
  • 100 g Broccolini (1/2 bunch finely chopped or use brocolli flowerettes)
  • 12 red capsicum (bell pepper or yellow finely chopped)
  • 80 g corn kernels (1/2 cup fresh or frozen)
  • 4 spring onions (scallions finely chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger (2cm piece fresh finely grated)
  • 14 cup coriander (finely chopped)
  • 4 eggs (50 grams lightly whisked)
  • 12 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 rolls (bread wholemeal grain large 80 grams split in half through centre)
  • 45 g salad leaves (mixed 3 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce (or more if you like)
  • 4 coriander sprigs (to serve)


  • Put prawns, broccolini, capsicum, corn, spring onion, garlic, ginger, coriander and eggs in a medium bowl and stir well to combine and season with pepper.
  • Brush the inside of 4 x 2.5cm high, 8cm wide round metal pastry rings or cutters with a little oil.
  • Heat half of the remaining oil in a large non-stick frying pan/skillet on medium-high heat and place rings in the pan.
  • Reduce heat to medium and spoon half of prawn mixture between the 4 rings and cook for 4 minutes or until mixture is almost set and golden brown underneath and then turn over burgers and rings and cook for 4 minutes or until set.
  • Using a small sharp knife, loosen burgers from rings and remove rings.
  • Transfer burgers to a plate and cover with foil and return rings to pan and repeat with remaining oil and prawn mix to make 4 more burgers.
  • Divide salad leaves between each roll base and add 2 burgers to each and drizzle with sweet chilli sauce and top with coriander and add roll tops to serve.
  • HEALTH TIP - for a lower salt option replace the greeen prawns with 250 grams of boneless white fish fellets, finely chopped (this will reduce the sodium/salt content from 706.1 mg to 541.1 mg.

With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
