These are a really yummy snack and super-easy to make. Perfect to serve in front of the big screen during the footy.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes • Cooking Time: 5 minutes • Serves 4

2 cups rice bubbles

4 tablespoons plain flour

¼ cup water

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

1 cup vegetable oil

15 king or large prawns, shells removed and de-veined

Juice of ½ lemon

Salt and pepper

½ cup Kewpie mayonnaise


Place the rice bubbles in a small bowl. In another small bowl, mix the flour, water, garlic salt and Cajun seasoning to make a batter. (You are aiming for a fairly thick, heavy pancake-like batter that coats the prawns well. If it’s too thick add some water, if too runny add more flour.)

Heat the oil in a frying pan to deep-fry. (Use a deep fryer if you have one.)

Dip each prawn in the batter, and then in rice bubbles. Cook for 30 seconds each side in the hot oil. If the rice bubbles start getting wet in the bowl, replace with a fresh batch.

When all the prawns are cooked, place on a serving plate. Drizzle over lemon juice and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Serve with a dipping bowl of mayo (we like Kewpie the best).
