Tips when preparing golden fried prawns
After preparing the batter for the prawns, set the batter aside to rest for 15 minutes. The reason for allowing your batter to rest is to activate the baking powder for a lighter, crispier result. So even if you are in a hurry, avoid rushing the resting period of the batter.
Remember to clean the prawns and de-vining them. To prevent the prawns from curling, cut some slits on the inner side of the prawns.
When frying the prawns, place them in the hot oil in batches and allow them to fry until golden brown. Make sure you do not overcrowd the pan.
Prepare this starter once and you will have a new favourite to start off a delicious evening.
