My daughter had a request for me yesterday. She wanted to have fried prawn for her dinner. So, i decided to make Ebi Furai. It is a very popular dish in Japan. I found the recipe for this this last year from Cooking with dog channel on Youtube and since then I became one of her fans. I remade her Ebi Furay recipe few times and they always become a hit. We all love it. It is so delicious. It is crispy outside and soft and chewy inside.

Ingredients (Serving for 3-4 portion):
  • 15 prawns
  • 3 tbs flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • about 100-130 grams panko (Japanese bread crumb)
  • about 2 cups vegetable oil

Preparation :
  1. Peel the skin of the prawns but leave the tail on. 
  2. Remove the vein using a tooth pick.
  3. Wash and rinse the prawns under the running water.
  4. Dry them well
  5. Make a shallow diagonally cut on the bottom of the shrimp
  6. Press the prawn on the cutting board to prevent the prawn curling up during frying process. 
  7. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the prawn
  8. Prepare the flour on the plate, beaten egg, and bread crumbs on another plate
  9. Heat the oil on the pan
  10. Dip the prawn into flour
  11. Dip the coated prawn into beaten egg
  12. Dip it again into breadcrumbs and coat it well. If you want to have a thick breadcrumbs blanket covering the prawn, dip it again into beaten egg, and coat it again with breadcrumbs.
  13. Carefully put the prawn into preheated oil.
  14. Deep fry the prawn until it become golden brown
  15. Remove the prawn from the oil and drain it well.
  16. Remove the excess oil using a kitchen paper.
The original recipe requires tartar sauce for the sauce. Too bad i run out mayonnaise and cucumber pickle so i could not make it. I was using sweet chili sauce instead. It was still great. 15 ebi furay on the plate, and 5 minutes later they were gone. POOF!! Disappear. Definitely going to make it again next time.
