My mom used to fry prawns almost weekly when we were in our younger days. I just recently learnt this recipe although we have been eating for years. It is simple, easy and does not take a lot of preparation time. Whats great is that it is easy to prepare and delicious at the same time. I love prawns and I would always choose the larger prawns to make this Classic Fried Prawns. It is very important to choose fresh prawns when you make this dish as you can taste the aroma of prawns in this recipe. I will always make my way to the wet market to get the freshest prawns in the market. You will need to clean the prawn properly, peel off the shells and remember to de-vein the prawns. See below for the ingredients required and the steps to fry this delicious appetiser. This is also great for any occasion.
Crispy Fried Chicken Recipe
One of the best finger food for any occasion is the Crispy Fried Chicken. Everybody loves fried chicken especially when its crispy. There are many readily available mix of flours available at the stores nearby or supermarkets everywhere. I am fairly disappointed with many of them as the crisp do not last. It is only crispy the moment you lift the chicken from the frying pan and when it cools down, somehow it became soften and not crispy anymore. I prefer to make my own flour batter and I must say it is tried and tested to be crispy. The trick is to put more corn flour; about one third of the corn flour with some normal flour. Some of you may ask if it’s possible to remove the chicken skin so that you can get a healthier appetizer. Yes you can, and it doesn’t change the crisp. Do give it a try. Here is my own recipe for an almost guaranteed crispy fried chicken.
My personal favourite chicken recipe is definitely the Soy Sauce Chicken. It requires minimal effort, simple ingredients, can be prepared for lunches or dinners and taste good. All you need is a good quality of soy sauce and the black soy sauce. This recipe’s taste relies mainly on the soy sauce that you purchase. Hence, I do recommend that you pick the one you like best. I do not have any preference in particular as I get to try the different types of flavours and aromas from the different kinds of brands. ‘Why’ you might ask. By having several different types of brands, the mixture of taste would make the chicken taste different significantly. So if you’re the adventurous type like me, I do recommend that you pick a couple of brands to spice up your taste bud and explore the various different types of soy sauce chicken each time and you will be sure that your family would not complain that you’re cooking the same old dish weekly. Refer below for the method to prepare the soy sauce chicken.
