Deep Fried Almond Prawns 香酥杏仁虾

I supposed to make this deep fry prawns during CNY, but keep delaying till now..Anyway never too late to make this, nice aroma from almond flakes and juicy prawns, and dipping with sweet chili sauce, not bad at all.

I decided to halve the large prawn, chop another half and mix with meat, then it was easy to wrap to make round shape.

Deep Fried Almond Prawns香酥杏仁虾

12 large prawns, peeled and devined
150g minced pork

1/4tsp salt or to taste
1/2tsp light soy sauce
1/2tsp sesame oil
1/2tsp rice wine
1tsp tapioca starch

70g almond flakes

  1. Cut prawns into half, keep aside the half with tail, smashed another half and chopped roughly.
  2. Add chopped prawns with minced pork, add in all seasonings and tapioca flour, stir to mix till sticky paste.
  3. Wrap half prawn with tail with some minced pork mixture, then coat with almond flakes and shape into roll shape. Repeat till finished.
  4. Deep fry almond prawns in hot oil over low heat till golden brown, drained. Serve hot with sweet chili sauce.
