Recipe Ingredients for Sesame Prawns

12 prawns, tiger and raw
2 tbsp plain flour
1 egg, large
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 salt and pepper

Recipe Directions for Sesame Prawns

  1. Peel the prawns and remove the heads, keeping tails in place. Remove the black veins. Rinse the prawns under cold water, then pat dry thoroughly. With a sharp pointed knife, slit the prawns along their undersides. Open them out carefully, place cut-side down on a board, and press firmly on their backs to flatten them slightly.

  2. Spread the flour on a work surface, add the prawns and turn to coat the flour. Beat the egg in a bowl with the sesame seeds and salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Heat 600ml vegetable oil in a wok. Holding the prawns by their tails, dip them one at a time into the egg mixture, then immediately drop htem into the hot oil. Deep-fry for 1-2 minutes or until crisp and light golden, then lift out with paper to drain. Keep hot while deep frying the remaining prawns in the same way. Servce at once, garnished with parsley, and a bowl of soy sauce for dipping.
