Goan Prawns On Sticks # #FISHFRIDAYFOODIE

Fish on stick is a most popular beach food in Goa. These are delicious and mouthwatering prawns on sticks. Made this for a party and they vanished in minutes.

Sending this to Fish Friday Foodies, theme for this month is recipes for kebabs with fish or seafood of any sort, grilled, broiled, baked, ceviche, fish/shrimp balls...you name it. As long as you put a stick in it, it's good our Host is Sue Slusser Lau, thank you for choosing this wonderful theme.

40 Medium Size Prawns - shelled and deveined
1 Cup Fine Semolina
1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
Oil as required for shallow fry

For marination 
1 Teaspoon Turmeric powder
2 Teaspoons Heaped Red Chilly powder
1/2 Teaspoon Tamarind paste
1 Teaspoon Garlic paste
2 Tablespoons  Lemon juice
Salt to taste


Soak the sticks in water for at least half an hour.

In a bowl , add all the ingredients for marination , mix well. Add  in the prawns, apply the paste on each prawn well  and keep it for marination, minimum 2 hours in refrigerator.

In a plate mix the semolina and all purpose flour, keep aside.

Thread about 3 prawns on a stick. Like wise thread all the prawns on sticks and keep aside.

Before frying, coat the prawns thoroughly with  semolina mix.

Heat oil in a wide non stick skillet, when oil is hot enough, add the stick prawns evenly on the skillet, do not overcrowd.
Once they are nice and brown on one side, flip and cook the other side till it changes color. Squeeze lemon juice on top before serving.  Enjoy... the stick prawns......yummmm
