Yoshida Scampi Skewers

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.
