Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer, according to the manufacturer's instructions, to a temperature of 180°C | 350°F.
Mix the flour with a big pinch of salt and pepper. Make a well in the centre and break in the eggs, then incorporate all the flour from round the outside with a whisk.
Hold the prawns by their tails and dip them into the batter then drop them straight into the hot oil. Fry for 1 - 2 minutes, turning halfway through, until they are crisp and golden brown.
Transfer the prawns to a kitchen paper lined bowl to absorb the excess oil then serve immediately.
