serving time12


  • Bang Bang Sauce:

  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/4 cup Sriracha

  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • Prawns:

  • 1 (17-ounce) package kataifi (shredded phyllo dough)

  • 12 large prawns, shelled with tail on

  • 4 cups oil, for deep-frying


  1. In a mixing bowl, add sauce ingredients and whisk together. In a deep-sided saucepan, add oil and heat to 350 degrees.

  2. Remove the dough from its package and place under a damp cloth. Pull a strip of pastry from the pack and wrap it around one prawn. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside while you repeat with the rest of the prawns.

  3. When the oil has come to temperature, lower one prawn at a time into the hot oil, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and repeat until all of the prawns are cooked.

  4. Serve immediately, with bang bang sauce for dipping.
