Coconut Crusted Beer Prawns

Party food, is all about mindful planning, churning out some quick easy recipes, which are tasty at the same time. I personally like to do this kind of on the go recipes, which can be just done in a few minutes.

This particular recipe had always been made in a vegetarian version, with bread crumb coated vegetables, in my parties, until one day, while I had to submit a  recipe Made with Wheat beer, where I tweaked my existing recipe, with addition of beer to the batter, which gave me some surprisingly beautiful results. Not that i worked with beer for the first time, but here in the batter it just made a great difference, even in flavours.

Coconut crusted Prawns

I used Coconut on the prawns, as I personally like toasted coconut, and just had a khao suey meal before thinking about this recipe, so just thought  of trying to do this, and it turned out super cool.

If you don t have flaked coconut, just flake a dry coconut, and toast it in a hot girdle, or oven.

Mom never added egg to a frying batter, and always see her using baking soda, instead. Here I am taking the liberty of adding egg, as it adds to that extra flavour.

Try serving it with a homemade sweet chili Thai sauce, another very easy recipe.

Try it today and see how u would hook to this recipe for your upcoming parties.

Recipe Notes

I have used beer for an earthy flavour, and also as it adds to the lightness of the batter. You can replace it with soda water, or simply add Water and 1/2 tsp baking soda.

One can use vegetables or tofu instead of Prawns for a vegetarian version.

One can use regular Bread crumbs to coat the Prawns. 

U can easily skip the egg and just ass a pinch of baking soda extra instead.
