Gong Hey Fat Choy – Sang choi bao

Uncategorized | January 23, 2012 | By

Happy Chinese New Year and Welcome to the Year of the Dragon!  We celebrated Chinese New Year with another recipe from February’s Delicious Magazine, San choi bao or prawn, mushroom and vegetable wraps, and I served it with the suggested garnishes of spring onions, fried shallots, toasted sesame seeds and peanuts.  

You are supposed to use the lettuce leaves as sort of wraps but they tended to fall apart.  The recipe suggested ’round’ lettuce but I think it might work better with iceberg letter which might hold together better with the warm food.
