Prawn (Shrimp) Cutlets
Hold the prawns (shrimp) firmly by the tail and remove the rest of the shell, leaving the tail piece intact.
Split the prawns (shrimp) in half lengthways almost to the tail and remove the intestinal cord.
Flatten the prawns (shrimp) to look like cutlets.
Sprinkle with sherry.
Beat the egg and dip the cutlets in it, then in the cornflour (cornstarch).
Do this twice.
Fry the cutlets in deep fat for 2-3 minutes.
Drain and serve plain or with a sweet and sour sauce.
