"From the "Best Seafood Recipes Cookbook" of the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook series. I so like multi-purpose recipes & this 1 got my attention for its versatility. These bites of crunchy goodness are perfect as a brunch item, luncheon entrée, starter course or at room temp on a finger-food appy night! The recipe begins w/the rice & prawns pre-cooked & cooled, so the time required for that is not included. Enjoy!"
