When Thai meets Italy

20160515_143323

Couldn’t decide between Thai or Italian for lunch……so why not have both? This was a tasty wee snack for lunch that just simply worked. I love creating in my kitchen. Sun was shining today and wanted a refreshing lunch snack with a bit of a punch.

 

4 x Thai Rice papers

About 12 king prawns (3 in each wrap)

Handful of my favourite Italian pasta – Spaghetti al Nero di Seppia (translated – black squid ink spaghetti) 20160515_135909

Handful of Kalette leaves – steamed

Peanut satay sauce – my favourite is by Cottage Delights as it has a nice spice kick to it.

Parmesan Cheese – grated

1 tbsp crushed peanuts

 

  1. Cook pasta as per instructions. It does look a bit like worms…..lol!                                                     20160515_141611
  2. Heat a griddle pan to a high heat and griddle the prawns for a few minutes on each side. Then mix with the peanut sauce.                                                                                                                                                      20160515_141331  20160515_141806
  3. Soak the rice paper as per instructions.
  4. Assemble together with kalette leaves, spaghetti, prawns then shavings of parmesan, the roll to make your parcels. I always find folding the sides in then rolling keeps everything in better.                                                         20160515_142430
  5. Place on a plate, sprinkle peanuts over and serve with a little of the peanut satay sauce.  Yummy!
