4 Deep-fry prawns at 170°C until golden colour. Drain on a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Mix together the dressing.
5 Cook the bubble waffles as per machine instructs. Whilst each waffle is still warm, curve the bubble waffle into a cone shape . It helps place in a cup shaped container.
6 Assemble bubble waffle cones with prawns and cucumber strips. Drizzle Ma Po mayonnaise dressing and scatter with sesame seeds.
