Cheat's scampi with chunky chips
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Arrange the chips on a baking tray, drizzle with the oil and season. Bake for 40-45 mins until golden, turning halfway through.
- STEP 2
Mix the prawns in the beaten egg and tip the crumbs onto a plate. Lift the prawns out with a slotted spoon so that any excess egg drains off and toss them in the crumbs with your hands so they are coated. Transfer to a baking tray.
- STEP 3
When the chips have 10 mins to go, heat grill to high. Cook the prawns for 3-5 mins each side, until crisp and cooked through. Serve with the chips, some tartare sauce and lemon wedges, if you like.
