Recipe's preparation

  1. Place ginger, garlic, coriander, chilli, palm sugar, spring onion, soy sauce and sesame oil into mixing bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 5. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula and repeat.

  2. Add prawn meat and chop 3 sec/speed 5. The mixture should be slightly chunky.

  3. Roll teaspoon amounts of mixture into individual balls using your fingers and roll the balls around in the wonton strips. The wonton strips should coat the mixture in a dumpling fashion. 

  4. Place dumplings onto Varoma tray.

  5. Place 500g water into mixing bowl and place Varoma into position. Cook 9 min/Varoma/speed Gentle stir setting or until dumplings are springy to touch.

  6. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves, finely sliced chilli, spring onion with extra soy sauce for dipping, at the side.


Accessories you need



I was first shown this “pseudo-wrap” method by Shaun Presland, Executive Chef of Sake Restaurants on stage at Taste of Sydney 2014. The process seemed so simple and effortless, that I figured I’d make it even easier using my trusty Thermomix.

 -  Ask your fishmonger for wild prawns and peel them yourself – these are usually less loaded with hormones and preservatives. You can use the heads to make bisque in the Thermomix, deep fry them or even make your own prawn oil.

-   Have a fingerbowl with warm water on stand-by. If your fingers get sticky during the process of rolling the balls, pop them in the water to create a barrier and prevent more sticking.

-  If slicing the wonton wrappers proves too tricky, simply pop a tablespoon of the same mix in the middle of a round wrapper and fold up into a moneybag shape instead.
