Chinese prawn crackers are made of starch and flavourings. They are a popular snack food in Asia and the East and are also known as shrimp puffs, prawn chips and dragons clouds.

They are deep fried crisps basically with fish flavouring and little nutritional value.

They are high in carbs due to the starch base and sweet flavourings. The deep frying means prawn crackers and also high fat chinese food.

Particularly when you take into account prawn crackers are used as only a snack and often given as a free taster in chinese takeaways you are pumping your calories up straight away by eating these even before you start your chinese meal.

Beware the prawn crackers if on a diet!
