A prawn roll[1][2] is a take away item available in areas of Australia where prawn fishing is a major industry. Typically sold from stalls or small shops on the side of highways or in restaurants,[3] prawn rolls are an inexpensive snack popular with travellers: They are homemade or available commercially, usually deep frozen.[4] They typically are made using a soft white roll approximately six inches (15 cm) long, stuffed with a dozen or more peeled prawns, lettuce and remoulade, Thousand Island or cocktail-style sauce. They may be eaten cold, deep fried, or coated in tempura batter and deep fried.
