Life's Good Chiang Mai Prawn Wonton
    4 as an entree or canapé

  • TIME
    45 mintues

    Advanced - deep frying

    Chiang Mai Paste


  • 1/3 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp Life’s Good Chiang Mai Paste (Add Chiang Mai Paste to Cart)
  • 12 - 16 green prawns (peeled and cleaned leaving tail)
  • 12 - 16 wonton wrappers
  • oil for deep frying


  1. Combine Chiang Mai Paste and coconut cream in a bowl then add prawns and marinate for half an hour.
  2. Lift prawns out of marinade allowing excess to drop off before wrapping one prawn at a time with wonton wrappers. Lay the prawn lengthways along the wrapper, leaving only the end of the tail overhanging the edge of the wrapper. Fold the top edge over the head-end of the prawn to create a sealed end once the wonton is rolled. Wrap wonton around prawn so that only the small tail end with shell attached is sticking out for aesthetic value and a handle to grasp while eating. TIP: Use water to wet edges of wonton wrapper before rolling to help it stick. If prawns are particularly large you may require two wonton wrappers side by side.
  3. Once all prawns are encased in wrappers, heat oil for deep frying and cook until wantons turn golden brown (approx. 4 - 6 minutes). Be careful not to have oil too hot. Larger prawns may require a little longer to cook.
  4. Serve with your favourite Asian dipping sauce (great with Sam's Chilli Jam) (Add Sam's Chilli Jam to Cart)


TIP! This recipe is perfect served as a canapé or on a bed of Asian herb salad greens as an entree.
