Goong Tod Kratiem Prik Thai (Prawns Fried with Garlic and White Pepper)

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"This dish uses a classic Thai preparation method of protein. It might not sound like much, but it's a very satisfying dish, especially made with shrimp that's shell-on. We eat the shrimp shell and all, as to not miss out on any flavor. It's also a very kid-friendly dinner dish. Serve with lots of rice."

  1. Combine garlic, tapioca flour, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, and white pepper in a bowl; add prawns and toss to coat.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a heavy skillet over high heat. Add 1/2 of the prawns in single layer; fry until golden brown and crispy, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining oil and remaining prawns.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Use wok instead of skillet, if desired.
  • Prawns can be fried in 3 batches or more, if needed, depending on the size of your skillet or wok.

Made as written except that shelling and deveining shrimp is a must for us. The fish sauce smells strong and overpowering at first but stick with it because it tones down as the shrimp is fried....

I used Cod and it was delicious!! The coating sticks well and presents well if your entertaining!!
