Prawn Rissoles are delicious for starters or for that matter to eat at any time you feel like one.

A rissole is a small patty enclosed in pastry or rolled in breadcrumbs, usually baked or deep-fried. The filling has savory ingredients, most often minced meat, fish, or cheese, and is served as an entrée, main course, or side dish.

Traditional rissoles are patties of minced meat or fish wrapped up in a savory pastry and deep-fried. This version of the rissole comes from France, the nation which also gave this food its name: “rissole” comes from the Latin russeola, “reddish paste,” a reference to the appearance of the filling
