For best results, don't fry too many of the prawn crackers at once, and have a wire basket ready to quickly remove them from the hot oil. I get the best results deep-frying 6 - 7 crackers at a time more and its difficult to quickly remove them from the wok.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- Prawn Flavored Chips, such as Ching Kee, as desired
- 4 cups oil for deep-frying, or as needed
Place several chips in the hot oil, separating them if needed. Deep-fry the chips for a few seconds until they puff up (the process takes less than 5 seconds), then remove the chips and drain on paper towels. Lay out a fresh paper towel for each batch of chips before deep-frying.
Prawn crackers taste best served warm. If not serving immediately, store in a sealed container and reheat briefly in a 250 degree Fahrenheit oven (about 120 degrees Celsius) before serving.
