Cook Time 30 minutes

Servings 4


12 medium green prawns, peeled and deveined

4 crusty oval bread rolls

¼ of an iceberg lettuce, finely shredded

2 tomatoes, sliced

1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 egg, whisked

400ml buttermilk

Crumb mix

¼ cup plain flour

1 cup of polenta

1 tbsp celery salt

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

½ tsp white pepper


100ml whole egg mayonnaise

½ lemon, juiced

1 tbsp hot sauce of your choice


Combine the crumb mix together in one bowl. In another bowl whisk the egg and add the buttermilk. Place the prawns in the egg mixture, then toss in the crumb mixture, ensuring each prawn is completely coated.

Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and place them in the air fryer. Set fryer to prawn function and cook for 10 minutes.

Combine mayonnaise with the chilli sauce and lemon. With a serrated knife cut the bread rolls open and spread mayonnaise on each side. Evenly distribute the lettuce and tomato on the base of each roll and then top with 3 crumbed prawns.

*Alternatively preheat the oven to 180°C and cook for 10-12 minutes in the oven.
