Don’t we all wish at some point or the other, that we didn’t have to spend so much time in the kitchen. Specially on those days when someone comes over unexpected and decides to stick around to watch that football match. Its at times like these that recipes like this come to the rescue. Absolutely no effort and time to make and yet you look like a star, ‘cuz men love fried food specially while watching their matches. And beer batter prawns with some chilled beer to go with it … You might just score some special points too :-p. Its really as simple as clean , dip and fry. Prepare the prawns by shelling them and de-veining them. Lightly salt them and keep chilled in the fridge. If you have the time try and chill the flour as well. All cold ingredients really help to make a crispy batter. The beer too needs to really cold, so give it 30 mins in the freezer. When ready, stir the beer in the flour, using enough to make a really thick batter that will coat the prawns. Put in hot oil and fry for 2 mins or till golden and crisp. Drain on a kitchen towel and serve immediately.

Ingredients

  • 20 large Tiger Prawns – de-veined and shelled with tail on
  • 200 gms 00 flour (strong flour)
  • Your choice of beer -preferably the light kind- a stout will definitely ruin the colour of the final product.
  • salt to taste

I love beer batter fried anything.. This looks delicious!!

Beer batter? Sounds and looks delicious with prawns…never had it 🙂

I didn’t see you mention what kind of beer you used. That is the best part of the recipe. You should try blue moon sometime it has subtle hints of cardamon and orange peel.

Is the type of beer important here? I don’t think so, but in any case I love this recipe and can’t wait to try it soon!

Beer helps to make a light batter. As usual, you have the most intoxicating, delicious looking photos! FAB!

Wow…simple to prepare and looks delicious. I have used beer to make fish and chips…very delicious. Have to try on prawns.

Back here at home we call this camaron rebosado and serve it with sweet and sour sauce. One of my favorite dishes growing up 🙂

I’ve been craving beer battered fish…this only made the craving intensify. This looks AMAZING.

Oh yum, this looks perfect! Quick and tasty. I’ve never tried beer battered prawns yet. Should give a try soon. My bf would love it, I’m sure. Your photos are gorgeous, I love the backlighting.

I’m in love with this site! So many great recipes. It sounds and looks really yummy. Never had prawns before but I want them in my mouth. 🙂

Hi Kajal !
I discovered your blog while looking for some variations of Banoffee Pie. I must admit yours won hands down. It is sad that I discovered this treasure trove almost 2 years after it has been in existence but you are already on my favorite list. Loved all the recipes that I have been able to got through so far.

Yummy. I love prawns. And batter. And beer (in food!) or on its own, mixed with coke. Yummy again

Wow! This sure is a winner 🙂

Perfectly golden and crispy shrimp. Such a treat!

I can’t wait to try this. I love beer battered onion rings (just made some with my onions from my farm-yum!) so this sounds awesome!

Oh my… these look SO good right now. My mouth is watering so incredibly bad.

I don’t care if it’s 1am here… I’ve gotta make these now!

Can’t wait to make this right away! Thanks.

Linda

Food blogs are fun. I am quite surprised by how many weren’t already aware of beer batter. It’s commonly used in
California. If you are doing prawns, try dredging them in flaked coconut before you fry.

these look absolutely delicious! love this recipe, and the photography. wonderful blog!

my husband will go crazy over this

Dear Kajal,

I made these over the last weekend and they came out fabulous. Even before I could take out the next batch from the frying pan the first batch was already over. They were so good we ate them all up without even clicking pictures. But this is definitely going on my blog very soon and is a keeper for life.
