Fried Garlic Prawns

Prawns/shrimps are any seafood lovers' absolute favorite.Like they say, anyhow you make it, prawns are yummy!No need to take any special efforts to make it taste good :)
This is just a simple everyday not too fancy fry, you can make it for a simple weekday's lunch or a nice party snack/appetizer.I'm on my vacation right now and so had to miss a few regular events that i usually make posts for.Hope to make up next month.

My daughter happens to be a big sea-food lover and so am I, and my love for seafood reincarnated after our year long trip in the UK where i didn't get to have any seafood because both of us me and my DH are not too good at buying fish.
My mom just makes the yummy fish curry even more yummy by dropping a prawn or two into the gravy.But be sure to do this only once you're about to turn off the heat of the curry we don't want our shrimps to go all chewy and rubbery.The cooking time of prawns is just 2 minutes I'm not exaggerating.
The trick to know if a prawn has cooked is- the translucent fresh prawn will go pinkish white once it gets cooked and thats all the cooking it needs because if it gets over done it will lose the taste and also texture.

For this recipe we need 

Prawns cleaned as much as you need
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Coriander powder 1tsp
Garlic pods crushed 3-4
Pepper powder 1/2 tsp
Lime juice 1 tsp
Salt to taste
oil to shallow fry
  • Marinate the cleaned prawns with the spices and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • Shallow fry the prawns until done.
  • Serve hot with any sauce of your choice or have them with spicy hot rice and curry.
