Oatmeal Prawns

For this post, I am sharing my next food recipe, Oatmeal Prawns. Our 2 older kiddos are not a fan of prawns and I have a packet of prawns left in my freezer and having a teething 9.5 months old baby who clings to me practically the whole day long, I decided to try this recipe out after seeing the fuss-free steps and simple ingredients. Without further ado, here is the recipe for Oatmeal Prawns:

* Prawns (quantity up to you)
* 1 egg - beaten
* Oatmeal
(quantity up to you, more if you want to fully coat the prawns - I used 1 cup)
* Half cup of cornflour or wheatflour (I used cornflour)
* Half tsp of salt
* Oil - for frying the prawns (quantity up to you)

* Wash and devein the prawns, make sure they are as dry as possible (use paper towel to absorb)
* Marinate with salt for about 5-10 minutes.
* Coat the prawns with cornflour first
* Dipped the prawns into the egg mixture followed by coating it with oatmeal
* Heat up oil in pan.
* Fry the prawns until golden yellow color
* Remove excess oil (if any) and ready to serve (you may serve with mayonaisse as well)



Oatmeal Prawns

I like that the oatmeals provided a nice coating all around the prawns. Maybe it's because I'm trying real hard to camouflage the prawns (so that our older 2 kiddos will eat them!) I think I coat the prawns with oatmeals a wee bit too much. Also, don't expect the prawns to be crunchy (in case you get fooled by the appearance) Other than that, it is very easy to make this dish, little ingredients, easy to follow steps. This recipe is definitely for keeps!
