Chinese New Year Inari Age Laughing Prawns Salad

Ingredients

12 medium Prawns
2 Hard-boiled Eggs
1 Green Apple
½ Mango (not too ripe so it’s sourish)
1 slice of Watermelon
4 tbsp Salad cream/Mayonnaise (depending on preference)
12 Inari Age (Japanese Beancurd Skin)

Preparation

1
Mash eggs & mix with salad cream or mayonnaise. If you prefer a sweeter taste, go with salad cream. I like mine with mayo.
2
Clean & devein prawns; separate the heads. Blanch prawns & heads.
3
Drain & transfer to ice water to prevent them from over-cooking. Dice prawns & set aside.
4
Remove apple & mango skin & dice fruits into small cubes. Soak apple in salt water, lemon juice or cider vinegar to prevent it from browning. I usually use the traditional method of soaking in salt water handed down by my mom. Add them into egg mixture, together with the diced prawns.
5
Remove excess “sauce” from beancurd skin & stuff mixture into the pockets. You may have to cut & adjust the pocket height.
6
Cut up watermelon & start plating your dish. Chill your appetizer & you’re ready impress your guests with this Inari Age Laughing Prawns Salad (嘻哈大笑虾沙拉)!
