Fried Prawns With Salt, Pepper, And Chilies


In a medium bowl, combine the prawns with wine and sea salt.

Heat the oil on high heat. Toss the prawns in the flour; shake off any excess and deep fry until golden in color. Remove the prawns with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Remove the oil and leaving about 1 Tbsp, cook the garlic on moderate heat until golden in color. Turn the heat on high; add in the chilies, scallions, sea salt, 5-spice powder, and pepper. Give the mixture a quick stir and mix in the prawns. Stir briefly to coat the prawns with the chili mixtures. Serve immediately.
