½ cup water
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
Parsley sprig, to garnish
Lemon wedges, to serve
For the Dipping Sauce
King Prawns Recipe
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp dry sherry
2 tbsp clear honey
Preparation Method: King Prawns Recipe
Whisk the water with the egg in a large bowl. Add the flour and cayenne pepper and whisk until smooth.
Carefully peel the prawns, leave the tail sections intact. Make a shallow cut down the back of each prawn then pull out and discard the dark intestinal tract.
To make the dipping sauce, combine soy sauce, honey and dry sherry in a small bowl until well combined.
Heat the oil in a deep fryer, until a cube of stale bread tossed in becomes brown in 1 minute.
Holding the prawns by their tails, dip them into the batter, one at a time, shaking off any excess. Drop the prawns carefully into the heated oil and fry for 2-3 minutes until crisp and golden brown.
Drain King Prawns on the kitchen paper and serve with the dipping sauce and lemon wedges, garnish with parsley.
