Ultimate Beer-battered Prawns

PREP TIME
10 minutes
COOK TIME
15 minutes
SERVES
Makes 18 pieces
Ingredients

18 large prawns or shrimp 

½ cup corn flour (cornstarch) 

vegetable oil for deep frying 

sea salt 

 

Batter: 

150g (5 oz) plain flour (all-purpose flour) 

50g (2 oz) corn flour (cornstarch) 

1 tsp sea salt 

1 tsp baking powder 

320ml (11 fl oz) cold beer 

 

Spicy Mayo: 

½ cup mayonnaise 

¼ cup Marion’s Kitchen Coconut Sriracha* 

Steps
  • Step 1

    Ensure the prawns, flour, and beer are all cold and taken straight from the fridge just before cooking. 

  • Step 2

    For the spicy mayo, combine the ingredients and set aside until ready to serve. 

  • Step 3

    Prepare the batter ingredients by placing the plain flour, corn flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. 

  • Step 4

    Place the ½ cup of corn flour onto a plate or tray. 

  • Step 5

    When ready to serve, heat enough vegetable oil to deepfry in a large, deep frying pan or wok over high heat. 

  • Step 6

    When the oil is nearly hot, take your beer from the fridge and pour it into the flour mixture. Whisk until smooth. 

  • Step 7

    When the oil is hot (a wooden chopstick should start to bubble when dipped into the hot oil), coat each prawn in the corn flour. Shake off the excess and then dip the prawn into the batter before gently placing it into the hot oil. 

  • Step 8

    Repeat with remaining prawns (do this in batches if necessary). Cook for 2-3 minutes or until each prawn is golden, crisp and cooked through. Drain on the paper towel. Serve immediately with the spicy mayo.

  • Notes
    Notes:

    – You can also use any hot sauce you love or keep it just plain mayo if you’d like a non-spicy version.
