I love these! My husband and I do not always spend Christmas with our families and this is something that we sometimes make together (much smaller) as starter/nibbles for Christmas Eve. It is not traditional “Christmas food”, but it’s a combination of many things we like. This week was actually the first time I made these outside of the Christmas period.
A quick disclaimer first. This is a very lazy recipe and yes, opening a jar and a pack was part of the process.
I start with frying frozen prawns in a very hot pan with cut onions, sunflower oil and a scotch bonnet chilli.
I then add diced okra, mushrooms and carrots. I cover the pan and let it all soften. I mix in Thai red curry paste (the infamous jar), pepper and garlic paste, to which I add lime juice, spring onions and some kaffir lime leaves.
I use shop-bought puff pastry for the rest. I don’t think I’ve ever made puff pastry myself (gasp). These shapes are not the most aesthetically pleasing,but they work for us.
These prawn puffs are absolutely delicious, I promise.
I like them with a tomato salad. My husband just scoffs them as they are.
Bon appétit !
