Recipe: Pan-fried Prawns (Fresh Water Prawns)/干烧虾
6 fresh water prawns (or jumbo prawns or big prawns)
1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice wine or shaoxing wine
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon chopped scallions
1 teaspoon cooking oil
Heat up a wok with cooking oil. Drop in the chopped garlic and lightly saute till light brown. Add in the fresh water prawns, soy sauce, wine, sugar and do a few quick stir. Use the wok turner to press each prawn down (pan-frying) for both sides of the prawn. Add in the chopped scallions and serve hot.
The wok will get really dry and the prawns might appear burned but it’s fine as it will add that “charred” flavor to the prawns.
