We ate these CRISPY FRIED PRAWNS as a starter this evening. This time we used fresh, raw prawns which were soft and juicy. The last time we ate these, we used FROZEN prawns, which were equally delicious although they were not quite as soft.Seek out Panko breadcrumbs, often hiding in the spice aisle of the supermarket, for exceptionally crunchy prawns. We were surprised at how low in calories this dish is too. Take a look at our easy recipe:
CRISPY FRIED KING PRAWNS IN BREADCRUMBS
Large raw prawns (defrosted if using frozen)
One egg - beaten
Oil for cooking
Dust prawns with seasoned flour. If you want to spice them up, this is the time to do it.
Dip prawns in egg, then Panko breadcrumbs.
Deep fry until golden brown - this should only take around two minutes.
We believe the deep fried prawns contained less calories using Panko breadcrumbs because they soak up less oil. Before frying, each prawn is around 20 calories, we're not sure how the deep frying affects that number, but we would estimate our six deep fried prawns at around 250 calories. We dipped ours in sweet chilli sauce - which is also very low in calories.
REMEMBER: - Do you know how many calories you are allowed each day?
Here's a link to our very first blog post about our weight loss journey, which we began in January 2011. We started this blog as a way of recording what we ate while losing weight. The blog is a food diary, and contains lots of recipes, tips and ideas about losing weight.
