2. Wrap a wonton skin around the center of each, so that the tip and the
tail are exposed. Dip your finger in a little water and dampen the open
edge slightly to seal.

Serving Ideas : Prawn Rolls

NOTES : Simple to prepare and delicious tasting, these prawns (shrimp) are
marinated for just 15 minutes in an aromatic blend of garlic, cilantro
roots, white pepper, and fish sauce. I've wrapped just the middle of the
prawns in wonton skins and let the tails show through decoratively. Serve
hot and crisp as an hors d'oeuvre with small bowls of Sweet Garlic Sauce
and Indonesian Soy Sauce alongside for dipping. Have a tiny plate at hand
for the tails.
