Crispy Crunchy Fried Mantis Prawn Recipe Ingredients:
500 gram Mantis Prawn with no shell
One tablespoon of oil
One tablespoon of soy sauce / Pinch of salt
Crispy Crunchy Fried Mantis Prawn Recipe Steps:
Step 1 – Marinate the Mantis Prawn
We use frozen mantis prawn with no shell. We defrost it, washed it with water and then we start to marinate the prawn. Firstly, we use egg white and mix it with the mantis prawn. Next, we add one tablespoon of oil, one tablespoon of soy sauce and some black pepper to mix with the mantis prawn. You can substitute soy sauce with salt and marinate the mantis prawn for at least 10 minutes.
Step 2 – Creating the batter
Prepare the flour with ratio 1:1 of corn flour and tapioca flour.
Step 3 – Coating the mantis prawn
Once you have marinated the mantis prawn, coat the prawn with the mix corn flour and tapioca flour batter. Make sure you coat the mantis prawn one by one instead of a big lump of mantis prawn. Put it onto a plate so you can prep it for deep fry.
Step 4 – Deep fry mantis prawn
Pour the cooking oil into your pot and make sure it is at the high heat. Put the mantis prawn coated with the batter (mix corn and tapioca flour) into the hot cooking oil. Make sure it is at high heat and deep fry when it turns to golden orange colour.
Once the mantis prawn turned to golden orange colour, take them out. Time for the refry it for the second time. This is the key of making the crust crispy and crunchy. Remember, you must use high heat to deep fry the mantis prawn. Once the mantis prawn turned to golden brown colour, take them out to rest.
For some people who loves extra crunchy fried mantis prawn, you can deep fried it for the third time. However, if you do plan to deep fry it for three times make sure you don’t over fried the mantis prawn.
After you deep fried the mantis prawn twice, you can stir fried with any sauce you like such as salt and pepper, salted egg, marmite sauce, sweet chilli sauce and more. That will depend on your creativity.
What we did is we purchased the Zhen Mei Wei Malaysia Chef Recipe Salted Egg sauce from Shopee at https://bit.ly/3zrYkFm so we just stir fried it with sauce and it is ready to eat.
The mantis prawn is crispy on the outer layer and tender inside and it is well marinated. The salted egg sauce is creamy, sweet and flavourful and the kids loved it. The salted egg sauce goes well with the Crispy Crunchy Fried Mantis Prawn.
