2 tsp Cooking oil
¼ tsp 5-spice powder or Paprika

* You must've realized there're no pix instructions for this post. They were here initially but due to a maintenance performed by Bloggers, my pix were all wiped out. I've no back up, only these 2 pix left. So sorry!

  1. Remove prawn heads & keep for other uses. Dispose shells, leaving tail intact. Devein prawns by making a small slit just enough to remove veins.
  2. Make 2 slits at the back of prawns to prevent from curling during frying.
  3. Mix self-raising flour, 5-spice powder, salt & pepper. Set aside. Then mix the wet ingredients: eggs, oil & beer & whisk them. Add flour mixture slowly & whisk into batter.
  4. Heat oil. Ensure oil is hot enough for deep-frying by sticking your chopsticks into wok. Temperature is right when you see bubbles.
  5. Dust seafood with corn flour evenly.
  6. Then coat with batter. Lower prawns into wok & fry till golden brown.
  7. Refry prawns just before serving for that extra crispy touch! Enjoy your light & fluffy Prawn Fritters! Bon Appetit!
