For The Prawns

For the Avocado Aioli


  • For the prawns: In a bowl stir together flour, salt and paprika. Whisk eggs in one bowl and pour panko crumbs into another.
  • Heat avocado oil in a wok (or deep pan) until hot (190C).
  • Dip prawns into flour mix, then whisked egg, then finally into panko crumbs to coat. Fry a few in the oil at a time, until golden brown, about 2-3 mins. Remove with a metal slotted spoon and place on a paper towel. Repeat with remaining prawns.
  • For the avocado aioli: scoop avocado pulp, discarding the seed and skin. Add all aioli ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Season to taste. Spoon into a dipping bowl.
  • Serve hot crunchy fried prawns with avocado aioli. Yum!


Fresh tip: To test the oil, dip a little flour in the egg then crumbs and drop it in the oil. The oil should sizzle and the ball float on the surface straight away.
