My youngest will like this very much. Prawn is his favourite. I must put this in our grocery list. He only likes egg white. We have plenty of fresh parsley at the moment. Thanks for sharing.

egg white on prawns is a good idea- adding that sweetness to it!! I am such a fan of prawns- good protein!

One of my fave ! Steaming's the best way to cook fresh prawns ! And that dish is a sure winner ;D

Both cake looks really great ! The chiffon cake looks absolutely divine :D Yummy !

Jessie-CookingMoments said...

Nostalgia! This is the way my mum cooked the prawns/crabs! Ahhhhhh, just remind me that I haven't had this for a long time! On my last trip, I requested mum to make sambal petai(mild hot version) & "yeong tau fu!"

Your prawns are huge! And the way you cooked & presented is just the same as the restaurant standard! So lucky for being your family!

The cakes, hmmm, no need to say much, just beautiful! There were so many cakes to be eaten in 1 day!

i love this dish, i recalled this is how it was served in of my fav restaurant, one lobster served in two different flavour, one is exactly the way you did, and another half is cooked in a dark caramel gravy which resemble prawn paste(har ko) and what not secret ingredients , both are finger licking good.

Sonia, you are a queen of savory and sweet dishes. Seriously! Love those prawns. I think my husband loves these!!

yvonne said...

My PIL always order this dish whenever we dine at Chinese restaurant. I know this dish it quite easy to replicate, but never knew it was soooo easy!

Sonia, if I peel off the shell before steaming, would it affect the taste? I'm lazy to peel on the table :p
