Salt and Pepper Prawns

Salt and pepper dish has its origins in Cantonese cuisines. There are many types of salt and pepper dishes available. The most popular original recipe is using squid, and other versions include either prawns, chicken, pork spare ribs or even beef.

In this gluten free recipe, I am using prawns as an alternative to the usual squid as its simpler to cook at home. Salt and pepper prawns dish is not only easy to make, it has a salty, spicy taste as the name suggests and it is deep fried to a light golden crisp. Ideal as an entrée, main or even finger licking party food and its very addictive, you would not stop at just one or two prawns.

I have used Tapioca flour or often called tapioca starch in my recipe. It is made from cassava root from South America, not only naturally gluten free but also has a delicate sweet flavour and very rarely people are allergic to this flour. Combined with rice flour, tapioca flour gives an optimum result for flavour and crispiness.
