I love Prawns, you can cook them any way you like, Boiled, on the BBQ, in a Gumbo, stir fired, stick em in a wonton and steam them, coat them in Breadcrumbs and deep fry, or mince them and make a Crispy Prawn cake out of them.
Today is a low calorie diet day, and Prawns are a really low source of protein with very low calories, so I wanted to incorporate them in tonight’s dinner. I also wanted to keep this recipe really simple, and not overpower the prawn flavour with heaps of herbs and spices unlike this recipe http://www.45degrees.co.nz/thai-fish-cakes-low-cal-smash-hit/
Nine simple ingredients including the salt and pepper make up these delicious patties. The Prawn flavour is kept intact, they are crispy on the outside, the Panko breadcrumbs keeps them light and fluffy in the middle. These are grilled (broiled) in your oven at the highest temperature your oven can manage, this allows the outside to brown an crispen, while the center is just cooked. Even if I wasn’t watching my calories, I would oven grill them, that’s how good they turned out.
The picture show the generous helping you get from this recipe. These are about 100 calories for each large Prawn Cake.
