To finish White chocolate mango cheesecake with berries. Thanks Megsie this is why I love you  so. Another Wednesday Girls Dinner masterpiece 🙂

 Coconut Prawns w/ Mango Mayonnaise

Ingredients (serves 6)

1 cup (150g) plain flour
1/2 tsp caster sugar
2 tbs coconut cream
1 egg, beaten
2 cups panko breadcrumbs
2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
36 green prawns, peeled (tails intact), deveined
Canola oil, to deep-fry

Mango mayonnaise

1 ripe mango, flesh finely chopped
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime, plus extra wedges to serve
1 cup (300g) whole-egg mayonnaise
1 small red chilli, seeded, finely chopped

Method

For mango mayonnaise, place mango, lime juice and zest, mayonnaise and half the chilli in a food processor and whiz until smooth. Place in a serving dish and refrigerate until needed.

Mix flour and sugar in a bowl and season. In another bowl, beat coconut cream and egg with a fork. In a third, mix crumbs and coconut. Dip prawns first in the flour, then the egg, then the coconut crumbs. Chill until needed.

Half-fill a deep-fryer or large heavy-based saucepan with oil and heat to 190°C (or test a cube of bread – it will turn golden in 30 seconds when oil is ready). Fry prawns, in batches, for 1-2 minutes until golden, turning if necessary. Drain on paper towel. Serve with mayonnaise, topped with remaining chilli.
