Ingredients

  • 3 large baking potatoes, cut into chunky chips
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 400g raw peeled king prawns
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 140g dried breadcrumbs
  • tartare sauce and lemon wedges to serve (optional)

Tip

No grill?
You can cook the prawns in the oven for 10-12 mins, they just may not go as golden.

Method

  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.

  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.

  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.
