For the Prawn Patty:

  • 1 lb fresh prawns, peeled and deveined
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to your spice preference)

For the Southern Fried Coating:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For Frying:

  • Vegetable oil

For Assembly:

  • Burger buns
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Your favorite burger condiments (mayonnaise, ketchup, etc.)


  1. Preparing the Prawn Patty:
    • In a food processor, combine the peeled and deveined prawns, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Pulse until you have a well-mixed, slightly chunky paste.
    • Shape the prawn mixture into burger-sized patties. Place them on a plate and refrigerate while you prepare the coating.
  2. Creating the Southern Fried Coating:
    • In a bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, dried oregano, and black pepper.
    • Coat each prawn patty in the flour mixture, ensuring they are well covered. Shake off any excess flour.
  3. Frying the Prawn Patties:
    • In a deep frying pan, heat enough vegetable oil for frying over medium-high heat. The oil should be around 350°F (175°C).
    • Carefully place the coated prawn patties into the hot oil. Fry for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Use a slotted spoon to remove the patties from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  4. Assembling the Burger:
    • Toast the burger buns if desired. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom bun, followed by a prawn patty. Top with sliced tomatoes and your favorite burger condiments. Finish with the top bun.
  5. Savoring the Seafood Symphony:
    • Serve Phatman’s Southern Fried Prawn Burger immediately, allowing the flavors and textures to come together in every bite. The crispy coating complements the tender prawn patty, while the bun and toppings create a harmonious balance of taste and texture.

Pro Tip: Customize your Southern Fried Prawn Burger with your choice of condiments and toppings. Whether you prefer a classic combination or want to explore new flavors, the choice is yours to create a burger that suits your palate.
