Today my kids are very excited when my hubby's classmate gave us 1 kg of large prawn. They request mummy to cook their favourite deep fried prawn (the chinese style) but i told them i am going to do the Japanese style... EBI FRY for dinner:D
宝贝们今天特兴奋, 老公的同学送了我们1公斤的大虾. 宝贝就要求妈妈煮炸虾(中式的), 不过我告诉宝贝们今天妈妈要煮日式炸虾, 当晚餐 ^_^ This is dish that my kids will definitely order when we go to a Japanese restaurant. Other then this they will request for another dish that is Ebi Tempura. I always wonder how do they cook the prawn so very straight. Again with Nami's step by step tutorial i know how to cook a very straight Ebi Fry at home ^_^
Ebi fry’s prawns are very straight. (i learn from Nami how to make the prawn very straight but mine is still a little curve when fried )
Season the prawn with salt and pepper.
Dredge the prawns with flour, and then beaten egg (I follow Nami did not dilute the egg mixture, but you can do so with 1 Tbsp of water or milk). Next usually go to Panko, but for Ebi Fry, you double dredge with flour and egg. So after the egg, you go back to flour, then egg, and finally panko. Shake off the excess.
Heat the oil to 350F (180C) degree
Gently put 2-3 prawns in oil and deep fry them for about 2.5 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer Ebi Fry onto a wire rack or paper towel-lined tray to remove excess oil.
Between batches, make sure to scoop up the bread crumbs to keep the oil clean and avoid the oil turning dark.
