This was supposed to just be a light snack - but it ended up being a bit more substantial so we didn't end up having the main course! It's a big cop-out really, lots of bits from the supermarket thrown together to be greater than the sum of their parts. These would be great for a summer lunch party.
Prawn & Cashew Rice Paper Rolls
1 packet cooked king prawns in chilli and coriander

Put the prawns in a bowl, chop roughly together the herbs and cashews and add to the prawns. One at a time, soak the rice paper rounds in a bowl of warm water, put a couple of tablespoons of the prawn mixture on one end and roll up firmly. Serve with dipping sauce.
