Recreate this takeaway favourite with the low-carb Southern Style Coating

By tweaking the Southern Style Coating with Chinese five-spice and a little fried chilli and spring onion, you can recreate this fantastic and moreish dish at home. 

By baking the prawns with the coating, you are saving countless calories and carbs and gaining plenty of gut-healthy fibre - all without compromising on taste! It's a no brainer really! 

The key to baking these prawns is hard and fast - get the oven pre-heated as hot as it'll go and get them in and out in 8 minutes for a crispy coating and perfectly cooked prawn.

  • Lo-Dough Southern Style Coating (enough to 12 prawns - approx 2 portions)
  • 1 teaspoon of Chinese 5 spice
  • 12 large tiger prawns
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 red chill, sliced
  • 3 spring onions, sliced
  • 10ml of olive oil
