Fragrant Panko Prawns

These deep fried prawns went down a treat recently, we were actually fighting over the last couple in the bowl. These are a naughty treat, and certainly not something one would have every day, but every once in a while, one needs a treat. These are the perfect starter, or canapé with drinks.

Serves 4 for a starter


  • 16 prawns, raw and shelled and deveined
  • 2 eggs, beaten in a bowl
  • 1 cup of cornflour, laid on a plate, seasoned with salt & pepper
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut flakes
  • ½ cup of panko breadcrumbs
  • Salt & pepper

To serve: leafy greens and sweet chilli sauce


  1. Heat up your deep fryer to 180 degrees
  2. Get an assembly line going, with the cornflour, the eggs and the coconut bread crumbs in a row.
  3. Dredge each prawn in the cornflour, tap the excess off, then add to the egg, tapping the excess again.
  4. Finally, place in the crumb bowl, and press in the coating.
  5. Lay on a plate until ready to deep fry.
  6. Then fry in the deep fryer for 4 minutes.
  7. Drain on kitchen paper
  8. Place 4 prawns per person on a plate of decorative greens, with a wedge of lemon and some sweet chilli sauce.
 Tip:If you are unable to find panko, toast stale bread and then whizz it into breadcrumbs.
