Gluten Free Lemon King Prawns

Battered King Prawns
This recipe came about due to a deceptive Chicken Breast that thawed into a fraction of the size I thought it was when I got it out of the freezer to make Lemon Chicken. Too late in the day to thaw another one I figured that King Prawns would be a good addition to bulk up the meal, so I just marinated and battered them the same way as I did the Chicken. Lemon King Prawns created.

This recipe is for 8 - 12 Lemon King Prawns, if you want to make more just use another egg and more corn flour.


King Prawns
1 Large Egg
1 Tablespoon Tamari Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar
Juice of 1 Lemon
Zest of 1 Lemon
Corn Flour
Oil for frying (I use corn, groundnut or for a fuller flavour sesame)
Pinch of Sea Salt


  • Defrost the prawns if frozen and devein

  • Break the egg into a flat bottomed container and whisk
  • Add the tamari soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and salt, mix until even
  • Zest the lemon straight into the container then juice and add
  • Mix
  • Put the prawns into the lemon marinade and cover both sides

  • Put a couple of heaped tablespoons of corn flour into a flat bottomed container
  • Remove the prawns from the marinade and place into the flour in a single layer

  • Shake the container to completely cover the prawns in flour

  • Once the oil is hot add the prawns
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes each side or until thoroughly pink
  • Drain on kitchen paper

Lemon King Prawns, Done
Lemon always goes great with prawns so I was confident that it was going to taste lovely and it did. These King Prawns are really filling because they're so meaty, in addition to the disappointingly small chicken breast and some stir fried Courgettes this made for a really hearty meal that made a nice change.

If you're a regular reader you may have noticed a few little changes to the blog. There was going to be a complete overhaul of design a while back but my designer had more pressing things (i.e. actual paid work) to focus on so it's been delayed. I still wanted Free From G to have an update though so I added a popular posts section a week or so back and now there's a navigation bar up top and related posts section at the bottom of each..... post.

One day Free From G might actually look a bit professional, in the meantime we'll carry on regardless.

It's nearly the WEEKEND!
