Spring Onions

2 medium, finely chopped

10 g, grated

Breadcrumbs, dried

50 g, panko

Rapeseed Oil

100 g, finely shredded

  1. Put half the prawns in a food processor and blitz to a chunky paste. Roughly chop the remaining prawns and put in a bowl with the cornflour, egg white, spring onions, ginger and prawn paste. Mix well to combine, then shape into two burgers.
  2. Put the panko breadcrumbs on a plate and press the burgers into the crumbs, until they are well coated. Chill for 30 minutes to firm up.
  3. Heat the oil in a shallow non-stick frying pan and cook the burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side, until golden brown all over.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk together all of the ingredients for the katsu sauce until smooth and combined.
  5. Halve and toast the burger buns, and fill with the shredded cabbage, prawn patties and katsu sauce, then serve.
