Lychee Salad Prawns – 荔枝沙拉虾

Often used in cocktails and cakes, this timeless summer fruit features the simple blend of tropical sweetness with a hint of tartness. Our recipe pairs this delightfully sweet flora flavours of lychee together with the unique combination of deep fried, beer marinated tiger prawns.   

Using beer as a marinade is a quick hassle free way to enhance the naturally sweet flavours in the prawns, if you don’t want to use beer you can also use the syrup from the canned lychee.. For crispy, crunchy batter and no splattering of oil, make sure your marinated prawns are pat dry before deep frying.

With its high smoke point, Knife Groundnut Oil is the ideal base to use for deep frying. Infusing its natural nutty flavours as the batter forms into a layer of delicious brown crisp. Extracted from pressed peanut kernels, Knife Groundnut oil also lowers cholesterol levels and equips your body with the essential dietary fats for a healthy diet.

Quick to put together yet refreshingly impressive, kick away the sweltering summer heat with this prawn and lychee combo, guaranteed to wow everyone’s taste buds!
