Deep-Fried School Prawn

    20 minutes

    I love this mini mini prawn. It's so cute. I simply coat them with chilli seasoned flour and deep-fried, lemon wedges on the side to serve. Crispy, sweet, salty and chilli prawns, such an easy snack, or as an appetizer.Great with a pot of beer, sake or even straight up vodka. Enjoy!

    Made these last night as I wanted to do something different with a pack of prawns, and they were great! Very quick and easy to cook (I shallow fried as I don't have a deep fat fryer), and they were delicious  -  02 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Made this due to having some prawns which needed eating. Delicious with a green leaf salad and a glass of wine!  -  15 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
