It’s the season to be jolly and these delectable and extremely easy spring rolls are perfect for all the parties happening now.

I know cheese and seafood are a big no no together, but I love the melty mozzarella cheese with the prawns and coriander. It’s a delicious combination. Fried to crunchy perfection and dipped into something sweet and spicy, I cant recommend them highly enough.

I used my Breville Fryer which makes the whole process even easier. Just heat the oil to 180C and cook them off in batches. They can be made in advance and stored in a container in the fridge until you are ready to fry them up just before serving.

Adjust the quantity depending on how many you want to make. A store bought spring roll dipping sauce or sweet chilli sauce works well to serve with these.

For each spring roll you will need:

  • 1 sheet of spring roll pastry, thawed
  • 1 large prawn tail or 2 smaller prawn tails, cleaned and peeled
  • 1 piece of mozzarella cheese about 5cm long and 1cm wide
  • a sprig of coriander (about 2 – 3 leaves)
  • oil for frying
  • Sauce for dipping

Make the spring rolls in advance and fry just before you are ready to serve.

Roll the prawn or prawns fairly tightly into a spring roll shape with the mozzarella and coriander. Tuck the edges in to ensure the filling doesn’t fall out. Seal the edges of the pastry with a dampened finger.

*If you make these in advance, ensure you bring them to room temperature before frying.

Fill the Breville Deep Fryer with oil until the required level, and heat it on its highest setting. When it has reached the 180C, fry the spring rolls in small batches of 3 until golden brown turning once. Drain on sheets of paper towel and serve straight away.

    Spring rolls are my takeout weakness.. never made them myself from scratch before though! A definite recipe I must try.. these prawn and mozzarella rolls looks delicious!

    Hi Thalia, I cant resist them either but really so easy to do yourself. I think I rolled them the wrong way though 🙂

    Hi Alan, sorry – these are the only ones I use. I dont know of an alternative other than wrapping/ rolling in rice paper and then diping into your own home made batter. Alternatively you could bake them in phyllo pastry. Gets a similar result.

    We salute your courage with respect to combining seafood and cheese! Cooking is only great when we push the limits of flavor combinations. The prawn and mozzarella made me think of another one of my favorite pizzas – clam, bacon, white sauce and cheese.

    HI Andrew. Thanks :-). Wow that pizza sounds too divine. Im a huge fan of a pizza bianco. Love the white sauce idea too. I also adore prawns on a pizza. ColCaccio used to do my all time favourite combo, smoked mozzarella and prawn. In my fisrt cookbook I did a prawn and zucchini pizza with mozzarella soaked in cream. All just too delicious.
