Wattie's® Bit on the Side® Sweet Chilli is a hot and spicy chilli sauce that is great for dipping, as a maride or condiment on the side. Available in a 300g bottle.
1. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Add the prawns and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add half a pouch of the Wattie's Wok Creations Sweet Chilli & Lime Stir-Fry Sauce and stir-fry for a further 2 to 3 minutes until the prawns are cooked through. Set aside to cool.
2. While the prawns are cooling, make the dipping sauce. Combine the remaining Wattie's Wok Creations Sweet Chilli & Lime Stir-Fry Sauce and the lime juice in a small bowl. Set aside.
3. Place a rice paper wrapper in a bowl of hot water for about 30 seconds or until it has softened enough to roll. Pat dry and place on a flat surface.
4. Place some of the prawns, cucumber, bean sprouts, chilli, mint and coriander in a line down the centre of the rice paper wrapper, leaving about 3 cm at each end. Fold in both sides and roll up tightly to enclose the filling. Serve with the dipping sauce.
Place the rice paper wrapper on a damp tea towel to prevent them sticking to your work surface.
Replace prawns with 350g chicken strips. Cook following directions above for 4 to 5 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
Rice paper wrappers can be usually found in the International section of your supermarket or in Asian specialty stores.
If you can't get Lebanese use half a telegraph cucumber instead.
