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.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
