Butterfly crumbed prawns


Butterfly crumbed prawns - Crunchy juicy prawn fritters.

Yesterday my husband bought me this lovely juicy prawn fritters. Nothing to say, crunchy and yummy. We  really loved it so much. So I decided to try, it comes out exactly like that. I am really happy to share this post, butterfly crumbled prawns.

Butterfly crumbled prawns - as the name indicates, these are the deep fried prawns with crumb coating. It is a really easy dish, only the laborious process is that cleaning of fresh prawns, If you get it cleaned, then we can make it in a jiffy. Here I removed the skin and head keeping the last tail segment intact. If you want to avoid the tail portion, no problem go ahead. But I need it not only good looking of dishes but also makes cooking easy and of course not difficult to eat.

We are using fresh prawns in this recipe. This prawns will be coated with crumbs before frying. It should be cooked perfectly while the crumb gets a nice golden color. So I would suggest you to keep the flame medium once the oil turns hot.  Before putting the prawns in the oil, please ensure that the prawns are coated well with crumb and oil is nice and hot. If the oil is not hot enough then the outer side gets brown, the inner side remains raw and if the oil is not hot enough, then the coating will release into the oil. So ensure it.
