Gluten Free Tempura Battered Prawns

These gluten free tempura battered prawns are absolutely delicious and so quick and easy to make. This batter also works great with vegetables and mushrooms.


The secret to the perfect tempura is in the frying and dripping more batter on them as you fry them. There are some great videos on Youtube that show you the best ways to do this and it’s well worth a watch before you make these.
