Fried Tiger Prawns


I have shared few prawns recipe, but this one is completely different. Recently I got tiger prawns, I don’t want to make any curry, gravy or rice with this but I want to fry it. After surfing many recipes, finally got an idea to induce few basic ingredients in this fry for marination. The dish came out well, and the prawns are perfectly cooked to the right consistency.

I have accompanied Fried Tiger Prawns with Burnt Garlic Rice (Brown Rice), Coleslaw and Potato Wedges. Let us move on to the recipe…

I have used one and only Olive oil for this dish. #JoinOliveOilRevolution
