  • 600ml Cobram Estate olive oil to fry
  • 1 egg white
  • 1-2 cups potato starch
  • 1 spring onion, thinly sliced

METHOD :

  • To make the salt and pepper seasoning, combine all the ingredients in a mortar and pestle, grind until a fine powder.
  • Remove the heads from the prawns and take out the intestine track.
  • Fill a large wok or pan 1/3 full with olive oil and heat to 170-180 degrees C.
  • Whisk the egg whites to soft peaks, then add the prawns to the egg. Using your hands, work the whites into all the prawns.
  • Gradually add in the potato starch, until the prawns look dry, shake off any excess flour and cook the prawns, in the hot oil. Using a slotted spoon, remove any small pieces of batter that rise to the surface. Cook the prawns in batches for 2 minutes, or until just cooked. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on kitchen paper to drain.
  • Drain the oil from the pan, reserving 1 tablespoon of oil, Place pan back over a high heat. Add the spring onion, chilli and garlic, toss to combine, then add the prawns, sprinkling over a little of the seasoning as you toss.
  • Serve with fresh lemon wedges and coriander leaves.
