spotted mackerel at the local wet market to make myself some fish paste. I made it every Chinese New Year and also on special occasion. I often use it on stuffed beancurd ("yong tofu") and sometimes I would love to use it on some other special dishes. Right ! Just like the one here.... eatable fire cracker ! Doesn't it look much fun ?
And here's what I did.
150gm homemade fish paste
150gm shrimps / prawns, minced
1/2 cup water chestnut, chopped
1/3 cup carrot, chopped
handful of cilantro, chopped
1 TB wheat starch
salt & pepper to taste
*one packet of phyllo sheet / popiah sheet (small size)
(1) place all ingredients into a big bowl and mix to combine.
(2) spread a teaspoon of the mixture to phyllo sheet, wrap & sealed nicely with some egg white.
(3) then fry till golden brown.
(4) finally, decorate it onto a plate with chili sauce & mayonnaise.
