Chinese Deep Fried Prawn 中式炸虾球

This recipe is similar to my Crispy Fried Fish Fillet recipe, use only basic combination of flour and some simple seasoning. Fresh prawns has natural sweetness, therefore there's no need to add MSG or chicken powder in the seasoning/ batter. Deep fry at the right temperature, these deep fried prawns are juicy on the inside, the outer crusts are crispy, even the prawn tails can be eaten. ;)


6 Prawns 大虾 6只


1/4 tsp Garlic Salt 蒜盐 1/4 小匙
(can be replaced with crushed garlic and salt 可以用蒜茸和盐取代)

1/4 tsp Sesame Oil 麻油 1/4 小匙

Dash of White Pepper 胡椒粉 适量

1/4 tsp Shao Xing Hua Tiao Cooking Wine 绍兴花雕酒 1/4 小匙


45g All Purpose Flour 中筋面粉 45g

*1/2 tsp Baking Powder 发粉 1/2 小匙

* I usually use baking powder. However, this can be replaced with double acting baking powder, the batter will expand more. 也可以用双倍发粉,会膨胀更大。

1 tbsp Potato Flour 薯粉 1 汤匙

1/8 tsp Salt 盐 1/8 小匙


1/2 tbsp Sesame Oil/ Cooking Oil 麻油/ 菜油 1/2 汤匙

65g Cold Water 冷水 65g


Some oil for frying 油 适量
(I use Medella Premium Organic Coconut Cooking Oil)
