Golden Fried Prawns



Golden Fried Prawns

Serves: 3 - 4

You will need

12 large prawns ( 250 g ) , cleaned and deveined
200 ml oil for frying

For the marinade:

1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon wine or sherry or rum
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

For the batter:

3 tablespoon all purpose flour
3 tablespoon corn flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon white pepper powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon sesame ( white ) seeds ( optional )

Method

Wash, clean and devein prawns. If desired you can let the tail remain and then marinate the prawns. Drain out water completely and wipe with a kitchen towel.

In a bowl, mix soy sauce, wine or sherry, salt, pepper and marinate the prawns for half an hour.

Make a smooth paste by adding flour, corn flour, baking powder, oil, salt, pepper and egg. Add just enough water ( 1 tablespoon ) to get a very thick batter such that it coats well.

Dip marinated prawns into the batter. Sprinkle sesame seeds ( optional ).

Heat oil in a frying pan. Reduce heat to medium and deep fry 3 - 4 prawns at a time till golden color evenly. Do not fry on high heat.

Serve as a starter with tomato sauce or chilli sauce.
