Prawn tempura with wasabi cream dip HERO

Combine the dip ingredients in a serving bowl, season and set aside.

Half-fill a large pan with oil and heat until a small cube of bread turns golden brown in 30 seconds.

In a bowl, combine the flour and cornflour with some seasoning. Make a well in the middle, crack in the egg and mix with chopsticks. Slowly add the water to make a thin, slightly lumpy batter.

Dust the prawns in flour, dip in the batter, then fry in the hot oil in batches for 2-3 minutes, until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

Serve immediately with the dip and some lime wedges.
