    Scampi & chips with tartar sauce

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes to 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes to 30 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes to 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 2


    2 large, floury potatoes such as Maris Piper or King Edward
    2 tbsp rapeseed oil

    25g plain flour
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 large Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Egg, beaten
    55g panko breadcrumbs
    180g pack raw jumbo king prawns
    2 tbsp rapeseed oil

    2 cornichons, finely chopped
    1 tbsp capers, drained and finely chopped
    3 tbsp light mayonnaise
    Juice of ½ lemon
    2 tbsp chopped curly parsley

    1 lemon, quartered


    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. To make the oven chips, cut the potatoes (but don’t peel them first) into long chips. Place in a bowl of cold water and rinse well then pat dry with a clean tea towel. Spread on a large baking tray in a single layer and drizzle with the rapeseed oil. Toss well and place in the oven to roast for 25-30 minutes turning now and then until golden brown, crisp, and soft in the centre.

    2. Meanwhile, place the flour in a shallow bowl and mix in the cayenne pepper. Crack the egg into another shallow bowl and beat, and finally put the panko breadcrumbs into another shallow bowl.

    3. Toss the prawns in the flour until evenly coated. Next, dip the prawns in the beaten egg and finally press them into the panko breadcrumbs. Repeat until you have coated all the prawns.

    4. Heat the rapeseed oil in a frying pan and gently cook the prawns for about 2-3 minutes each side until golden, crispy and cooked through.

    5. To make the tartar sauce, place all the ingredients in a bowl and gently mix together seasoning with a pinch of salt and ground black pepper. Spoon into a serving bowl.

    6. Serve the prawns with the oven chips and tartar sauce and some minted peas and wedges of lemon to squeeze over.
