Prawn crackers are strange things. You'd think they're crisps, but they're not, they're just prawns mixed with tapioca flour. They literally mash up prawns, add some starch, and leave them to dry for several days. That's some dedication to get a nice crunchy snack. But I have to say that they are tasty, so maye it's worth it. Despite being made from mostly prawns, the flavour isn't too overwhelming. As long as you eat them within a few hours of opening the packet, the crunch is pretty satisfying. Sure, there's probably going to be some grease involved, but all the best crisps leave some kind of residue on your fingers, why should prawn crackers be any different?
They're a perfect accompaniment to a Chinese meal, or as a standalone snack. Light, crunchy, and flavoursome, I definitely love me a bag of prawn crackers.
