Salt and pepper prawns 

This recipe has been on my mind since Christmas. After serving it and watching how much people loved it, I decided it was time to put it up. 


  • 700g jumbo king prawns (with the shell on)
  • 1/2 cup corn flour
  • 1/4tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika 
  • 1 egg white lightly beaten 
  • Vegetable oil
  • 4 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 5 green onions chopped 
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spices
  • 3 red chilli 🌶 sliced
  • 1/2 shallot chopped 


  • Rinse prawns with cold water and turn into a colander, that helps the water drain off.

  • Pat prawns till they are completely dry. 
  • Turn into a bowl and pour in the lightly whisked egg white, coating the prawns.
  • In another bowl mix together your corn flour, salt,and  paprika for your batter.
  • Coat prawns evenly with batter and place on a clean flat plate or tray.

  • Heat vegetable oil till hot, then deep fry prawns till done. It starts turning pink.

  • In a pan, add a couple tablespoons of oil, add chopped shallots and garlic, cook until softened. 

  • Add sliced chilli, green onion and Chinese five spices and stir for about a minute.

  • Add in all your prawns, a pinch of salt and toss to coat. 

  • Turn off heat and serve hot.
