Now I learnt how to do this in Vietnam, rah rah rah, how wanky does that sound? Wanky but also true. We went on one of the epic LOOK trips and put some of our left over budget to a cookery class, sorry I mean recce of the kitchens.
The simple summer roll- I reckon this has the highest health/taste ratio of any lunch out there. Per roll there's 117 calories which means you can neck about 7 of them before you even start to feel guilty.
Start with the dipping sauce, chop up garlic, ginger, chilli in equal measures, blend and add a teaspoon of sugar,2 tablespoons of fish sausage and juice of a small lime.
Next prepare all the rolling ingredients. Cooked prawn cut in half (I recommend waitrose) thinly sliced carrot, beansprouts, lettuce, noodles that have been placed in hot water for 15 mins and drained, mint, coriander and chives
Errrrm Check out my mint! I KNEW needed that old can looking thing for a fiver from 'Workshop' in Brighton!
Get some rice paper, you can get these in any Chinese supermarket. Place in warm water for a minute or so until it softens.
Knew 'cigarette' smoking wasn't all bad, try and find a friend with experienced rolling skills to get these looking more profesh, alternatively just head to Camden and ask anyone there.
