How to Make Prawns Fry

Frying is one of the best ways to make a prawn dish. You can choose to deep-fry prawns or shallow-fry them. Prawns are either fried with a coating or tossed in a pan till they get a good colour and texture. They are then mixed with other ingredients like veggies to make the perfect dish. So, whether you love crispy fried prawns or a simple prawns chilli fry recipe, prawns never fail to impress! Crispy prawns are made either by coating the prawns in breadcrumbs, semolina or batter for that crisp texture.

  1. Add salt to the prawns and keep them aside. In a wok or pan, add the butter and olive oil.
  2. Once heated, add in the chopped garlic and saute well. Make sure not to burn the garlic. Add black pepper and salt and mix well.
  3. Add in the clean, deveined prawns. Saute gently. Cover wok or pan for about two to three minutes on low heat. Keep stirring to ensure the prawns don’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

  5. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot as an appetiser or meal.
Recipe Notes
  • You can also serve butter-garlic prawns with pickle or mint chutney.
  • For a slightly more healthy version, use olive oil instead of butter.
  • Prawns cook fast, so ensure you’re not overcooking them. Large prawns can take anywhere between five to eight minutes to cook. Overcooked prawns will taste rubbery and hard.
  • Use prawns with the tails on as this prevents the prawns from curling.
  • Prawns that are cooked well will turn pink on the outside.
