Possibly the yummiest way to cook a prawn! I use really large prawns for this and they need to be raw, cooked prawns would go too rubbery. I also tend to buy the prawns in the shell as they tend to be a bit cheaper and it takes no time to peel them.
The boys love them, possibly because they are served on a stick! We have these sometimes on a Friday night when we are doing the home made fast food challenge, gluten free and dairy free these beat the fish and chip shop by miles!
12 large prawns, peeled and deveined
2 egg whites
salt and pepper to taste
oil to fry in
Put your oil on to heat.
In a large bowl place the egg whites.
On a flat plate spread the cornflour and season with salt and pepper.
Take each peeled and deveined prawn and stick a wooden skewer up through the middle of the body coming out at the head end.
Once the oil is hot, around 180 degrees Centigrade prepare the prawns.
Whisk the egg whites until forming stiff peaks.
Dip each prawn in the egg white, turning the skewer as you go.
Now dip into the cornflour, again, turning as you go.
Immediately place into the hot oil and allow around 1min to cook turning half way, ensure that the prawn is fully cooked.
Serve with some dill mayonnaise, recipe on the blog.
