Pepper Prawns Fry

Deep fried spicy and salty prawns is irresistible and one of my favorite ways to eat prawns. This crispy fry will be a perfect treat for your family. Pepper Prawns fry is crispy fried prawns with exciting flavors of garlic,butter,zesty lemon and kick of pepper.It is my take to butter garlic shrimp,but a little spicy.This recipe is so versatile and easy to prepare.

If you get fresh prawns try frying it head on, it has an irresistible delicate crispness to it, juicy and equally tasty.Thanks to hubby who convinced me that the head is the most flavorful part of prawns…so true.If you are not a fan of the head,no worries, it is still tasty and irresistible.

The spicy marinade has black pepper,roasted bell pepper and bird eye chili. Bird eye chili is  hot spicy one,if you cannot handle the heat you can skip it or substitute with a less spicy one.Roasting pepper enhances the flavor and bird eye chili and black pepper contributes a little heat which is the key to this recipe. You will find this a perfect appetizer or serve it as a snack.
