Sorry if this is a stupid question, do they actually contain prawns?

I'm a vegetarian and ate some of them the other day, didn't even think of it when eating them.

Thanks

I'm afraid they usually do, less than 10% or something like that. You can get vegetarian prawn crackers though, but the ones you get from takeaways are usually non-veggie as far as I know sorry

If you're referring to the ones from takeaways you get free when you spend over £10 then you'll find that they're unsuitable for you.

Edit: Although veggie world (Chinese takeaway) near Milton Keynes do vegan ones. In fact all of their food is either vegetarian or vegan friendly http://www.veggie-world.com/Restaurant/Menu

Just on the off chance you're ever in or near MK

MADE FROM SHRIMP CAUGHT IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN it says in capitals.

I have a pack of them waiting to be fried, although deep fat frying at uni is time consuming

You mean your kitchen doesn't come with a servant? How peculiar

Doing things manually is such a chore I can sympathise with your frustrations :yes:

Have you ever tried frying prawn crackers? It's so boring It basically involves a saucepan of hot fat, chopsticks and 1 hour of dipping the crackers in and taking them out. And by the time you have finished half of them have been eaten and the other half are gone in half an hour.

If I had a deep fat fryer :hmmm: But then think of all the fat :coma:

As a worker in a Chinese, I can say that they do contain shrimps (not King Prawns) although it is in tiny, tiny amounts. If you've never seen them be cooked (usually they don't make them to order) it's amazing. They come in little discs about an inch across and about 1mm thick and as soon as they touch the oil, they frazzle up within about a second, it's quite funny to watch, kind of like that industrial insulation foam.

Far from the 10% the guy above said, a good prawn cracker is almost entirely prawn.

I really don't like prawn crackers. They make me think of cardboard and general pointlessness as by the time I've got around to eating the main part of my meal I find that I've filled myself up with prawn crackers on the way back from the takeaway.
