Breaded Scampi with Sweet Potato Wedges and Tenderstem Broccoli

Ingredients

190g Peeled Scampi

60g Plain Flour

2 Eggs (lightly whisked)

200g Breadcrumbs

2 or 3 Sweet Potatoes (depending on size)

Tenderstem Broccoli

Salt and Pepper

Olive OIl

Cooking steps

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200C. Put the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs in three separate bowls and chop the sweet potatoes into wedges (leaving the skin on for extra crispiness!). Put the sweet potato wedges on a baking tray and lightly drizzle with oil.. Add some seasoning then put in the oven for roughly 30 minutes.

Step 2

Season the breadcrumbs with salt and pepper and any other seasoning you want. Dust flour over the peeled scampi, then shake any excess off. Dip each individual piece into the whisked egg mixture, then into the breadcrumbs, ensuring to cover the whole piece.

Step 3

Fill the bottom of a pan with oil (a shallow pool at the bottom of the pan) and heat until slightly bubbling. Carefully drop each breaded scampi into the oil until brown and crispy. You can probably do about four at a time, just make sure they aren't touching each other. When they are done, remove from the pan and place on a piece of kitchen roll to soak away any excess oil.

Step 4

Serve with the sweet potato wedges and vegetables of your choice (tenderstem broccoli in this example). Enjoy!
