|1||Take raw scampi, cut off the heads, and extract from the base of the tail the gut of the animal (otherwise this can give a bitter taste to your scampi).
It's a delicate operation, but the small video on right will show you the details.
|2||Then extract all the flesh from the scampi tails.||10 min.|
|3||Prepare Herb salad.||10 min.|
|4||Whip 1 egg with 2 tablespoons water, salt and pepper.||2 min.|
|5||In a bowl mix 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs, 3 tablespoons sesame seeds and Herb salad with salt and pepper.||2 min.|
|6||Put about half an inch depth of oil (max.) in a frying pan on medium heat.||1 min.|
|7||With a fork, dip scampi in beaten egg.||1 min.|
|8||With another fork, dip wet scampi in sesame mix to completely coat them.
Note: if you use the same fork to dip in beaten egg and then in the coating, after a short time your fork will be completely stuck with egg and sesame.
|9||Put coated scampi on a plate until they are all dipped.|
|10||Then fry 30 seconds on each side.||1 min.|
|11||Leave to drain for a few seconds on absorbant paper to remove excess oil.|
