Seren's Pan-Fried Prawn Cakes

I may have had the heat turned up a little too high on these, they weren't burnt but they were definitely dark brown! They were however delicious. The recipe came from a fellow blogger over at WW Foodie and I used up almost all of my steamed buns. I froze the dough when I made the Pork Belly Mantou and I have to say it defrosted and steamed quite well. The prawns cakes went perfectly with the buns and I squirted over some mayonnaise and some chilli sauce and served it with stir fry veg.

Pan-Fried Prawn Cakes

300g raw king prawns
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
1 medium shallot, roughly chopped
1 tbsp grated ginger
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp flour

Oil for frying

Blitz the ingredients in a food processor until it becomes a paste, form the paste into burgers.
Heat oil in a frying pan on high heat and place the burgers in the pan. Fry on both sides until golden brown, about three minutes per side.
