Coconut Prawns On The Side Recipe can be enjoyed on their own or with a relish, chilli sauce, sweet chilli, etc.
To achieve the perfect crispy texture and flavour for your Coconut Prawns, here are some tips from us:
- Chilled Batter Magic: For extra crispiness, ensure your batter stays cold. The addition of ice cubes to the water not only keeps the batter chilled but also contributes to a lighter and crunchier coating.
- Perfect Coating Consistency: Achieve an even and tasty coating by uniformly covering your prawns in the batter and breadcrumb-coconut mix. This guarantees a delightful crunch in every bite.
- Oil Temperature Precision: Maintain the oil at the right temperature. To test, sprinkle a few breadcrumbs in the oil; it’s ready when they start to move around. Adjust the heat accordingly to prevent burning and ensure a golden finish.
- Patience is Key: Allow the fried prawns to cool on a paper towel-lined plate. This prevents them from becoming soggy and preserves their crispy perfection until you’re ready to enjoy them.
- Artful Plating: Arrange the Coconut Prawns on a serving platter with a scattering of fresh herbs. This not only adds a pop of colour but also enhances the overall presentation.
- Citrus Garnish: Garnish with lemon or lime wedges for a touch of acidity that cuts through the richness of the coconut coating, balancing the flavours beautifully.
- Stylish Serving Bowls: Present your Coconut Prawns in stylish bowls lined with banana leaves for a tropical touch. This enhances the aesthetic appeal and adds a hint of exotic flair.
Serve with a tangy mango salsa, sweet chilli sauce, or zesty lime mayonnaise to complement the rich coconut flavour and add a burst of freshness.
Pair your Coconut Prawns with a light cucumber and mint salad or a citrus-infused coleslaw. The crispiness of the prawns pairs beautifully with the refreshing notes of the salad.
Have that tropical experience by serving with a coconut-infused cocktail or a refreshing pineapple mocktail. This combination of coconut and tropical flavours can make a difference for your taste buds!
