This is my kid's favourite prawn dish especially Lucas.

Stir-fried butter sauce prawns



He likes to lick the prawn shells before removing the shells, then dip the peeled prawns with the butter sauce, YUMMY!!

I absolutely love prawns, it's a pity that fresh prawns can be so expensive in Germany and sometimes hard to get. Your butter sauce prawns look so simple yet so delicious!

OHhh, now realized that this dishes can be done w/o egg yolk...I tried once with egg yolk, but failed at last...it's really needs a High heat WOK with a vry fast movement of STIR..
