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!




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


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


Place 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.


In 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.

TIP: To toast sesame seeds, heat a dry frying pan on medium until hot. Add sesame seeds, stirring until lightly golden.
