Recipe By:Toi
“This dish uses a classic Thai preparation method of protein. It might not sound like much, but it’s a very satisfying dish, especially made with shrimp that’s shell-on. We eat the shrimp shell and all, as to not miss out on any flavor. It’s also a very kid-friendly dinner dish. Serve with lots of rice.”

Ingredients

  • 8 cloves garlic, chopped, or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided, or as needed
  • 1 pound whole unpeeled prawns, divided

Directions

  1. Combine garlic, tapioca flour, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, and white pepper in a bowl; add prawns and toss to coat.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a heavy skillet over high heat. Add 1/2 of the prawns in single layer; fry until golden brown and crispy, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining oil and remaining prawns.
