Mr Ong came up with a challenge for me! Wasabi Mayo Prawn!
My first reply was.. “but… i don’t like to fry food in my kitchen! hmm ok.. i can try with air-fryer”. I seriously don’t like to fry food in my kitchen. 1st, the kitchen will get very sticky and greasy.. 2nd, I hate the splattering oil when deep frying.. 3rd, the kitchen gets real hot and I will get very agitated and my food won’t have the taste of love hehe.. anyway the reasons or excuses can go on and on…
Luckily, I have my Philip Air Fryer to help me solve part of the problem, which is air frying. The next challenge is, how to get the prawn crispy. I have done a few researches online and also tried a few methods. Finally, I agreed that adding a bit of baking powder will help in the crispiness of fried food.
And trust me, top the final product with tons of tobikko (flying fish roe). These tiny little stuffs will burst in your mouth with every bite, creating many different textures and flavour in your mouth.
- 10 pcs of frozen shelled and deveined prawn
- 4 tbsp cornflour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg white
- Cooking oil
- 3 tbsp Mayo (to add sugar or condense milk if using japanese style mayo to slightly sweeten it)
- Wasabi Paste (quantity depend on individual tolerance & preference on wasabi)
- Heaps of tobikko
- Parsley leaves
- Preheat the air fryer at 200 degree celsius
- Mix cornflour and baking powder together in a plate
- Thaw and ensure prawns are dry before coating the prawn with the flour mixture.
- After the first coat of flour mixture, dip the prawns into the egg white and re-coat the prawn with another layer of flour mixture.
- Brush the prawns with oil and place the prawns in the air fryer for about 5 mins or until golden brown
- Add the ingredients together and mix until combine
- Coat the prawns with Wasabi Mayo and garnish with tobikko and parsley leaves.
- Viola~~~ Time to tuck in!
