Crusted Prawns with 2.0 Chili Mayo

by Caren McSherry
Dukkah & Sesame Crusted Prawns. Dukkah is an Egyptian spice that goes a long way in taste and texture crusted onto jumbo prawns. Served with a spicy Harissa mayo gives it the perfect kick. Super simple.


      • 1/2 cup Dukkah spice
      • 1/4 cup white sesame seeds
      • 1/4 cup black sesame seeds
      • 2 egg whites
      • 24 large uncooked prawns, peeled leaving the tails intact
      • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro. (Garnish)
      • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil (garnish)

Ingredients for Chili 2.0 Mayo:

      • 3/4 cup good mayonnaise
      • 1/4 cup sour cream
      • 3 Tablespoons Cote D’Azur 2.0 Chili Paste


1. In a shallow bowl, mix the Dukka, white and black sesame seeds together.
2. Lightly whisk the egg whites until frothy. Dip each prawn into the egg white and then into the dukkah mixture.

4. Lay each coated prawn onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
