Have been putting together and trying out recipes for the best coated Prawns and this one finally hit the jackpot. Served with rice and fresh salad, it really is a must try especially on a Friday like this. 

Coated Fried Prawns


Deveined Prawns (uncooked king or jumbo Prawns)

2 Eggs beaten 

Vegetable Oil for deep fat frying

1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour

1 cup breadcrumbs

1/4 Cup Whole Milk

1 teaspoon paprika 

1 tablespoons garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Salt to season 

1. In a bowl place Prawns. Season prawns with salt, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper then massage seasonings in well.

2. Add the whole milk to the beaten egg and whisk slightly, then place flour and crumbs in separate plates. Coat prawns with flour, then shake off any excess then dip in the beaten egg then coat with breadcrumbs    generously.

3. Place prawns on a tray and leave aside for 20-25minutes.
4. In a deep pan suitable for deep frying, heat up oil and ensure its hot enough for frying. Add prawns and fry for 2-3 minutes taking extra care to avoid splashes of hot oil .5. Once done, the prawns should be golden, using a slotted spoon, take out prawns and place aside on a food towel to drain any excess oil.

6. Serve with rice and garnish

(NB: You can proceed to add honey in a small pan, then add lemon juice and soy sauce with a bit of water. Reduce the mixture and coat the prawns with the sauce👌🏾)
