These wheat cakes are made with Ebly, a popular French ingredient consisting of whole, pre-cooked durum wheat. The cakes are crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. When topped with marinated lime and herb prawns, they make an attractive, delicious and simple light lunch or supper dish. Buy large, ready cooked and peeled tiger prawns from the fish counter.
Use a spoon to place the mixture onto the baking sheet as the mixture is very sticky and will stick to your hands, but don't worry if the cakes are not perfect rounds.
Why not make a warm salad - cook the Elby and whilst still warm toss in the prawns, marinated in Leiseur dressing and lime juice (as above), chopped spring onions, rocket leaves and some freshly chopped coriander. Season with black pepper and serve immediately.
