Heat oil in a deep fat fryer or large saucepan to 180 degrees C.
Cut the prawns along the back, nearly through to the front. Stuff each prawn with some jalapeno pepper, then wrap with half a slice of bacon. Secure with a skewer. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Cook the prawns in batches in the hot oil until the bacon is crispy and golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on a kitchen towel-lined plate before serving.
