I am not too much of a shopper. I always go to the store with my grocery list and can get a cart filled pretty fast with all the necessity. I know where everything is located and get lost when the store plays cute with me and changed things around. The audacity of the marketing department to mess with my shopping!!
With that said, we are fortunate to have a wonderful service by Pete at Personal Gourmet Foods. All our meat, poultry and fish is delivered to us. Each piece is individually packaged. No more packages of 5 pieces for a family of 4… with that also come the bountiful selection of quality meats, fish and poultry that we can choose from.
Fish is always the first item that is running low and we love the selection that is presented to us.
Prawns are a favorite and almost a staple.
Usually we prepare pasta with them but last night I was in the mood of something different and decided to prepare them as I would chicken cutlets: with panko and egg mixture.
Deliciously fun dinner enjoyed with a green salad.
A strawberry sorbet ended a fun and great evening.
1 pound of prawns
1 cup all- purpose flour
2 extra large eggs
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1 cup Panko
½ cup parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dry marjoram
Salt and pepper
On a shallow dish combine the flour, salt and pepper. On a second dish, beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon of water. On a third dish, combine the bread crumbs, panko, and marjoram and parmesan cheese.
Coat the prawns on both sides with the flour mixture, shaking off any excess, then dip both sides into the egg mixture and dredge both sides in the bread crumbs mixture.
Heat the oil in a large sauté pan, ½ inch up to skillet side, and cook breaded prawns on medium high for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown on each side. Do not overcrowd the skillet.
