    Could I incorporate a prawn puree into a simple beer batter for fish? Any suggestions?

    Of course you can. But what are you trying to achieve? What are you going to serve it with?

    I don't see the end result as better than a plain batter but maybe you have other ideas I don't.

    Yes but it will be on the heavy side. What would you want to accomplish?

    I'm entering the great british pub food awards next year and wanted to create a fish and chip dish with a twist. I have realized that the prawn idea was more than a little outlandish. Instead i may settle for stuffing monkfish tails with a pea puree, wrapping it with parma ham and then battering.

    Don't stop thinking about new ways to do things.  Maybe this idea won't work (or will work) but if you keep experimenting you might strike gold!

    I would try the shrimp puree and see how it goes anyway.
