GF Honey King Prawns


 This recipe is suitable for deep frying & shallow frying only. Designed for use with Bakers' Magic gluten free flour, I can't guarantee yum scrum crispy batter if another gluten free flour is substituted in (you'll need to adjust the recipe).


King prawns - the amount will depend on how many you are feeding



100 g Bakers' Magic gluten free flour

100 g Maize starch (cornflour from corn)

1 Egg

1/2 tsp Baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

200 - 300 g Water


Water - The amount of water added will depend on how you like your batter. Add in the 200 g of water to start with, batter one or two prawns, deep fry them and get your family to try them. If the batter is too thick for your liking add in a bit more water.


Honey Sauce

140 g Honey


2 tsp Maize starch

Optional Black sesame seeds


Oil for deep frying/shallow frying

Optional Bean curd noodles



Use a stab blender to combine the batter ingredients in a bowl.

Combine the honey with a bit of water in a saucepan. Warm the mix over low heat. Taste a little of the mix, if it is too sweet add a little more water. If the mix is not sweet enough add in more honey. If required thicken the honey water mix with the maize starch. Turn off the heat.

Turn on deep fryer or start heating oil in fry pan (if shallow frying).

Put ~ 8 prawns into the batter, stir with a spoon to ensure the prawns are coated.

Use tongs to pick up the prawns by the tails and transfer them to the deep fryer. 

Deep fry the prawns for approximately 4 - 5 mins (it will depend on the size of the prawns).

Use a slotted metal spoon to scoop the prawns out of the oil. Transfer prawns to some paper towel. Cut one of the larger prawns to check that it is cooked through.

Repeat deep frying until all prawns are cooked.

Optional - deep fry some of the bean curd noodles. 

Heat the sauce.

Transfer prawns to a plate (optional arrange them on a bed of deep fried bean curd noodles).

Pour some of the honey sauce over the prawns & top with black sesame seeds (optional).

Simply enjoy!
