Crispy Panko Prawns

Serves: 4


  • 250 gm king prawns, cleaned and deveined
  • ¼ tsp black pepper powder 
  • 1 tbsp sriracha sauce, or as per taste
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ⅔ cup maida or all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup panko crumbs, now readily available in specialised food shops (can be substituted with cream cracker crumbs or bread crumbs, prepared by grinding lightly toasted bread in a mixer) 
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for cooking


  • Put the cleaned and deveined prawns in a bowl. 
    Add the black pepper powder, sriracha sauce and salt. 
    Mix well until well coated.
    Set aside for 30 minutes. 
  • Sprinkle the flour onto a plate. 
    Keep the egg mixture handy in a bowl.
    Roll the prawns in the flour, and then dip in the lightly beaten egg mixture. 
    Coat it with panko crumbs.  
  • Fill the prawns in an air-fryer basket and drizzle with oil. 
    Cook at 180°C for 20 minutes.
    Carefully turn the prawns after 10 minutes and let the other side cook too. 
    Alternatively, you can choose to deep fry the prawns in a kadhai or wok in hot oil.
  • Serve with garlic mayonnaise or aioli or mustard-spiked mayonnaise.
