Crispy Deep Fried Prawns

As promised, I have managed to take a photo of the Japanese Breadcrumbs which I used for the coating of these prawns. Somehow, I am quite sure that it was these breadcrumbs that made the difference in the normal deep fried prawns that I have eaten in the past. It stayed nice and crunchy even after some time. I suppose if this is the case, then this particular dish can be done up and served as a snack, especially for your favorite guy(s) whilst he or they are watching football. Ha Ha.. I think my sister-in-law is not going to thank me for this as my brother is a football fanatic (crazy MU fan).

This is the recipe for the Crispy Deep Fried Prawns

12-15 Medium -sized prawns

1/2 tsp with
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp sesame oil
some pepper
1 egg (beaten)
Oil for frying

Batter for frying
2 tbsp of plain flour *
2 tbsp of corn flour*
3 tbsp of breadcrumbs (Ottogi)*

* mixed together

  1. Shell prawns, leaving only the tails intact
  2. Slit the back to remove the veins, wash and pat dry
  3. Add in the marinade and leave for at least 30 mins
  4. Heat oil in a wok or a pan. Test the hotness of the oil by dipping a chopstick. When bubbles form around the chopstick, then the oil is hot enough
  5. Take a prawn from the marinade and dip it into the beaten egg.
  6. Remove from the egg and roll it into the batter.
  7. Shake out the excess batter and place prawn in the hot oil.
  8. Repeat with the rest of the prawns
  9. Fry the prawns until they turn golden brown
  10. Remove and drain on the paper towel
  11. Serve hot or cold on its own, or with chillie sauce or mayonnaise
