A delightful zuay to serve scampi, Yoshida Scampi Skewers make an unusual and delicious dish. Serve with Brazilian Rice.
2 lb. shelled and deveined Dublin Bay prawns
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried sage
8 oz. Fontina cheese, cut into
3-inch slices sufficient vegetable oil for deep-frying
10 fl. oz. Fritter Batter II
2 lemons, quartered
Season the prawns with the salt, pepper and sage.
Cut each cheese slice into four and thread 4 long skewers alternately with the cheese and prawns . Set aside.
Fill a large, deep rectangular baking tin one-third full with the vegetable oil. Heat the oil over moderate heat until it reaches 375°F on a deep-fat thermometer or until a small cube of stale bread dropped into the oil turns light brown in 40 seconds.
Pour the batter into a large shallow dish. Dip the skewers in the batter to coat them thoroughly. Place the skewers in the hot oil and fry for 5 to 6 minutes or until the batter is puffed up and golden brown. Using tongs, transfer the skewers to kitchen paper towels to drain.
Transfer the skewers to a large warm serving dish, garnish with the lemon quarters and serve immediately.
