Ingredients

Method

  • 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.

RECIPE TIPS
NO GRILL?

You can cook the prawns in the oven for 10-12 mins, they just may not go as golden.
