Drunken Crunchy Prawns

By Sherrie Sutcliffe and Joshua Price

 

These Drunken Crunchy Prawns are easy to make and delight on the pallet.
Start by marinating the peeled prawns you have just caught in quite literally any marinade you like be it honey soy, bbq or my personal favorite vodka and sweet chili sauce.
Sit them in this marinade for about an hour covered in the fridge or cooler to soak up all that flavor goodness.

Once they have been soaking in your chosen marinade for an hour add 3 to 4 tablespoons of water to the mix and gently stir and combine it through the prawn and marinade combo.
 
In a separate dish add about a cup of flour and simply dip the prawns into the flour to get a nice even sticky coat.
Make sure you keep a lot of the marinate on so the flour sticks. And looks chunky. This where you get your crisp and they will not be oily at all.
Place this straight into a ready to go pan to shallow fry.

You can do this exact same recipe with chicken or pork and is just as delicious.
