original recipe came from Sin Leong Restaurants(no longer in existence!). My mom learnt from the Master chef many years ago.

Easy to do, delicious too.


inside texture of the puff are fluffy, light.


Ingredients
20 pcs Tiger prawn meat
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground white pepper

batter
3 egg whites
2 tbsp Self raising flour

Method
1. Marinate prawns with rest of ingredients for 10 mins.
2. Whisk egg whites till it peaks.


3. Add sifted flour and stir to mix.
4. Add prawn into it, use a spoon to scoop up and drop into a wok of hot oil.


5. Deep fry till golden brown and drain on paper towels.

6. Serve immediately with mayo, salad cream or tomato ketchup.

Notes
Sin Leong Restauant's original recipe uses King Prawns or very large Tiger prawns. The head and shell removed leaving the tail shell behind. The prawn is dipped into the batter by holding on the tail, make a circular turn to coat the prawn with the batter. Then drop into the oil to deep fry.

The prawn will look a cotton candy on a stick(or cotton candy puff on a prawn tail)

I modified this so that we don't have to spit out the shells..just pop the whole piece into our mouths to eat straightaway.

Hi Gina

Would like to ask if marinating the prawn with sugar instead will enhance the crunchiness of the prawn?? Heard it from a friend's mom but have yet to try out.

Tried the recipe on Saturday.. marinated the prawn with sugar instead.. didn't marinated the prawn with salt so I don't know if there is any difference.. blah blah I added some salt to the batter though.. was trying to entice my daughter into eating prawns.. but wasn't successful..

oh.. and I used the egg yolks left over to make mayonaise.. added some lemon juice and zest to it.. goes very well with the prawns.. thanks for the recipe.. Smile

My daughter loved this! Unfortunately, mine did not puff up so beautifully like yours, Gina. Perhaps I did not drown my pan with oil so how? Nevertheless, it was delicious... thanks Gina Mr. Green
