Crispy prawn

Trenyce requested to have this prawn dish after she ate it at a japanese restaruant. Didn't manage to get straight prawns but still manage to get something similar.


500g prawns

salt & pepper

1 egg -- beaten

tapioca starch or corn starch

bread crumb



1. Rinse prawns, remove shell, use toothpick remove vein on the back of prawn. Do a few horizontal slit on the front part of the prawn. Dry the prawns with kitchen towel.

2. Marinate the prawns with salt and pepper for 15mins.

3. Heat wok with oil for deep frying. Coat each prawn with tapioca starch, then coat with egg, then coat with breadcrumb, place into hot oil. Fry till golden color, remove and place on paper towel to let the paper soak away excess oil. Serve with mayonnaise.
