Fried Prawn Wanton

Seemingly I have come a long way with my photography skills. I guess practice makes (Cincalok Omelette & Thai Style Fried Chicken) , if not 100% perfect, at least nearest perfect (Fried Lotus Root Spring OnionGobi 65) Then again, mind you, this whole thing about photography is, most people think its the camera, maybe, I somewhat agree, but more to that, its yours creatively on the prop and angle (Fried Prawn Mee, Prawn Curry Mee & Prawn Devil Curry) . These underpinning your creativity is something you need to dig into yourself. No one can teach on food styling (Prawn Wanton Soup & Prawn Fritters). I myself learned it on my own. Of course if I am to share my experience, actually come to think of it, I really can't say much expect that you need to allow your imagination to fly wild (Stir Fried Prawn Cabbage & Pepper Tamarind Prawn) . Let it go, stop procrastinating whether you can do it or not, because the more you doubt yourself, the further your ability will ditch you.

So, those bloggers out there, specifically those who share recipes, do it, but it must be your own creativity. Do invest in some decent utensils please for god sake instead of using the flowery gaudy ugly plates which most probably you have been keeping for donkey years. I am not saying that you must buy aplenty, nevertheless, its worth the investment on some, especially white utensils which I believe will be appropriate for food styling. You might as well look for other props, maybe those you have been keeping aside. Dig them up. You never know, they will do a whole lot of mix and match for producing beautiful food pictures. How about also considering a plain background instead of on your bright colored plastic table cloth? I bet, if you hear these tips of mine, you will head somewhere. 

Alright, some sharing of my knowledge for the benefit of all of you, today, we will be doing the frying to these Fried Prawn Wanton (Fried Prawn Wanton). One which I think I have shared a few years ago, this is the improvised version in tastes and capturing them as one whole composite of delicious crunchy treat and as a stylishly presented dish. Prawns (Grilled Spicy Prawns) are the use for filling into the wanton skin. You may, if you prefer, opt for other types of seafood (Fish Cutlet & Fish Curry) or meat (Chicken Wanton Soup). At the end of the day, basically its your choice against mine (Curry Chicken Noodles & Grilled Mackerel). But potentially, I would appreciate if you can replicate this recipe of mine because your feedback definitely will add positiveness for me and also, I can at the same time, base on what you have commented, improve in my cooking.  Enough said, let us now crunchy into these fried beauties. Will be double fab if you dip them into some chilli sauce before mouth tucking. Take care everyone. Will see your soon. Oh, not to forget, fried stuffs must be stuffed into my tummy soonest. Otherwise they may loose their crispiness and crunchiness.

8 wanton skin
10 medium size prawns - de-vein, remove shells and chop
1/2 carrot - remove skin and chop/thinly sliced
3 sprigs kucai/chives - slice thinly
1 sprig spring onion - chop
1/2 tbsp ginger paste
1 tsp cornflour
Pepper and salt for taste
Oil for frying

Combine/mix all ingredients together except for oil.
Divide equally into 8 portions.
Place in the centre of each wanton skin
Bring the corners of the skin together and nicely tuck/press together ( how to at chicken wanton)
Fry in batches and serve with chilli sauce.
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support is my pride. Thank you everyone.
