I really like the taste and texture of fried rice noodles. They also make a nice coating for flash-fried ingredients like fish. Don't worry too much about the fish not being coated fully; it's the cornflour and egg that seal the fish. The vermicelli will puff slightly and give you a lovely spiky texture. Yuzu has a sharp flavour similar to a lemon. The fresh fruit looks like a yellow tangerine; you can now buy the juice in a bottle.

Ingredients
 

  • 180 g freshwater prawns, about 12 shelled
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 2 tbsp cornflour, arrowroot or tapioca starch
  • 80 g fine rice vermicelli
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

For the Sauce

  • 4 tbsp Yuzu, (half 60ml bottle)
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 2 tbsp Mirin
  • 1 tbsp very finely chopped fresh ginger

Instructions
 

  • Heat a small deep fat fryer to 180C.
  • Break up the vermicelli; take care as it does have a habit of jumping out of the bowl. The larger the bowl, the better. You need to end up with 1-2cm pieces roughly.
  • Check all the prawns to make sure the intestinal tract has been removed from the prawns back. If not, run a knife along the back to open slightly and remove, then discard.
  • Beat the eggs, and then place the cornflour into a small bowl.
  • Dry the prawns on kitchen paper and then dip in the cornflour or other starch.
  • Dip 4 at a time, dip in the egg and into the vermicelli and press onto the prawns. Don't worry too much about not being perfectly coated.
  • Repeat until all are coated.
  • Fry 5 or 6 at a time in the hot oil for 3-4 minutes, until well puffed and light golden colour.
  • Let the heat get back into the oil and re-cook the rest in batches.
  • Season well with salt, pepper and dust with toasted sesame seeds.
  • Meanwhile, make up the dipping sauce by just simply mixing all the ingredients really well.
  • Serve the hot prawns with the dipping sauce.
