A tasty starter, luxury snack or nibble that works equally well with king prawns, tiger prawns or even crayfish, though I would be inclined to put 2 crayfish in each wrap as they are smaller.

Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 240° C (475° F - gas 9)

Method

  1. Prepare your chosen dip(s)
  2. Lay a sheet of filo pastry out and cut into 2.5 cm strips, lengthways. Keep the rest of the pastry sheets under a moist tea towel at all times or they will dry out.
  3. Brush both sides of the pastry with the garlic olive oil
  4. Lay a few strips or so of ginger over the prawn and wrap the filo pastry around the prawn
  5. If using tail-on tiger prawns, leave the tail exposed
  6. Continue until all prawns are wrapped
  7. Bake in the top of the oven for about 4 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown
