This small dried shrimps 蝦米(hae bi)  is crucial to this recipe, it add extra fragrant to this dish...

(recipe souce: by Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover)

King of soy sauce prawn500g large prawns, clean and snip off the sharp points
10 cloves garlic, chopped
2tbsp good quality of light soy sauce, or to taste
1tsp sugar
10g dried shrimps, washed
2 stalks of spring onion, separate white part and green part, cut 1” in lengths
1 red chili, shredded

Method
1. Heat oil in a wok over high flame, sauté garlic, dried small shrimps and spring onion (white part only) till aroma.
2. Add in the prawns, put in light soy sauce and sugar, quickly toss well with prawns, cook for 1-2mins. Add in green onions, mix well and turn off the heat.
3. Dish out, garnish with red chili shredded, serve hot.

* sometime i will slightly fry the prawn first and set aside, later only add into the rest of ingredients.
* I forgot to add little thick caramel sauce, next time must remember to add this.
* remember to cook prawn over high heat and do not overcook it.

this is one of my favorite dish too! Slight difference from my preparation - I pan-fry the prawns on high on both sides to release the aroma of the prawns, before adding garlic, followed with soy sauce and a little sugar.

Such a huge juicy prawns. They are simply divine! This is my fav way of cooking prawns too. Simple and delicious. We can't get prawns with their heads on from the supermarket here except in Chinatown and I am too lazy to drive all the way there.

Anthony Huynh said...

Hi Sonia, I stubbled onto your website through Lily's and so glad I did. Those king prawns looks so deliciously moorish that I have to go out now and get some and give it a try.

Extreme Power said...

Looks nice. BTW, is it true that to reduce the cholestrol, they recommend to eat some part of the skin to neutralize it?
tks.

Julian Si said...
