I prefer my shrimp/prawns served warm myself as well. And coconut prawns with sweet chilli sause is always a good treat
Here is my favorite shrimp recipe:

For Uncle Bubba's Fry Mix:
Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 4 months.
Lightly sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper. In a small bowl mix the eggs, 1/4 cup water and hot sauce. Place the fry mix in a shallow dish. Dip each shrimp in the egg mixture and then into the fry mix.

Heat 3 to 4-inches of peanut oil in a Dutch oven or deep-fryer) to 350 degrees F.
Place the shrimp in the pot and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove with a clean strainer or slotted spoon and drain on paper towels for a minute.
