    About this recipe: This is a classic Thai preparation of meat and fish. It might not sound like much, but it's a very satisfying dish, especially made with prawns with their shells still on. We eat the prawns shell and all, as to not miss out on any flavour.

    Serves: 4 

    • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 8-10 garlic cloves, depending on size, chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
    • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
    • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
    • 500g medium sized prawns, ideally shell-on

    1. Mix the garlic, white pepper, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar and tapioca flour in a bowl. Toss the prawns well in the mixture.
    2. Heat 2-3 tablespoons oil in a heavy frying pan or wok over high heat. Add a third or half of the prawns and fry until golden brown and crispy, turning once. Repeat with the rest of the oil and shrimp.
    3. Serve immediately with lots of rice.
