What says Australia Day better than steaming prawn cakes on the Varoma? Maybe it doesn't have quite the same ring to it as tossing a shrimp on the barbie...
My favourite ingredient in these little balls is the coriander root which I can't believe I used to toss away! It has the most amazing smell and adds incredible flavour.
We ate these dipped in soy sauce and sambal oelek and even though I doubled the recipe we were all disappointed when they were gone. Maybe to distract themselves from their empty plates, this snack kicked off an amusing round of the boys attempting to catch flies with their chopsticks, Karate Kid style.
Definitely an unconventional Australia Day!
