DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a wok or deep-fryer to 190ºC.
  • Combine tapioca starch and Chilli Salt in a plastic bag. Add prawns and shake to coat well. Tip into a fine sieve and shake off the excess mixture.
  • Lower the prawns into the oil in batches and fry for 30-60 seconds, until they change colour and begin to float.
  • Drain on paper towel and sprinkle with salt flakes. Serve immediately with lime wedges.
  • Notes: If prawns are small enough, they can be eaten shell and all.
