Crisp Golden Sand Prawns

Golden Sand PrawnsSalted egg yolks were always my favorite and I often use it in my recipes. Today, I'm going to gel them with crisp fried prawns coated with a delicious batter. If you do not prefer deep frying these prawns, you can shallow fry them in a nonstick pan. You can make this recipe in different ways by making slight variations in the ingredients list. Leftovers of this recipe can be coarsely chopped and can be stuffed in sandwiches. Calamari can also be made in a similar way. I generally serve such prawns with creamy and spicy dip. Use seasonal prawns for this recipe but make sure they're fresh. So let's make these delicious and crispy prawns with select ingredients to give surprise to our loved ones.
