Honey Prawns

This yummy dish is best served with jasmine white rice, but you can serve without rice and it works as a crispy snack for your party feast too!


4¾ cups self-raising flour

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp white pepper

1 cup water

1 egg

Vegetable oil, for deep frying

½ cup cornflour

16 green prawns, peeled, deveined, tails intact

½ cup honey

2 tbsps canola oil

1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted (see tip)

Steamed long grain rice, to serve


1Sift flour, salt and pepper into a bowl. In a jug, whisk water and egg together. Gradually whisk into flour mixture to form a batter.

2In a deep saucepan, heat oil on medium until a little batter bubbles as soon as it is added.

3Place cornflour in a shallow dish. Lightly coat prawns in cornflour, shaking off excess. Dip prawns a few at a time into batter, draining off excess. Cook in batches for 3 to 4 mins, turning until golden. Transfer to a wire rack.

4In a frying pan, combine honey and canola oil. Heat on medium, stirring. Add prawns, tossing until well coated. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve with steamed rice.
