Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 4 kaffir lime leaves (torn)
  • 1 piece fresh ginger (finely chopped)
  • 2 stalks cilantro roots (fresh, and stems, washed and sliced thinly)
  • 1 3/4 pounds medium shrimp (peeled and deveined, tails intact)
  • 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns (cracked)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning (piri piri)
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt flakes
  • 1 egg white (lightly beaten)
  • vegetable oil (for deep-frying)
  • 1 red chili pepper (fresh long, thinly sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves (chopped fresh, for garnish)

Directions

  1. For the chilli syrup, combine all ingredients and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan on medium heat. Stir for 1-2 mins, or until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, for 5 mins, or until sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat. Let stand for 15 mins, then discard lime leaves.
  2. Combine breadcrumbs, pepper, seasoning and salt in a medium bowl. Holding shrimp by the tail, dip one at a time into egg white, then coat in crumb mixture.
  3. Fill a large saucepan or deep-fryer one-third full with oil. Heat to 350°F, or until a cube of bread turns golden in 10 seconds. Deep-fry shrimp, in batches, for about 1 min, or until cooked through and crisp. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Sprinkle shrimp with chili pepper and cilantro leaves. Serve with sweet chili syrup for dipping.
