Salt & Pepper Prawns in Overcoats (Gambas A La Gabardina)


These tasty Prawns go perfectly with chilled ice-cold, beer, and can be whipped up in minutes. The batter will be crisp and the prawns tender and juicy inside. The salt and pepper mix just lifts the prawns to another level. You will always want more so be greedy and dip in aioli or a spicy harrisa mayonnaise.
