Steamed Garlic Butter Prawns! A dish that will remind you of the sea, with its naturally sweet and savoury flavours in the prawns and stock! Come and know the secret behind preserving the freshness of this dish.
Wash, clean and prepare the prawns. See below for my Video Tutorial on How to Clean and Prepare Prawns.
Pat the prawns dry and add 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of sugar to it. Mix gently without breaking the heads of the prawns until the salt and sugar are evenly distributed.
Arrange the prawns on the stainless steel plate lined with baking sheet. Avoid stacking the prawns on top of each other as they won't cook evenly.
Spread the garlic mixture over the prawns and cover it with the baking sheet.
In a wok, add sufficient water for steaming and bring to a boil over high heat.
When the water is boiling, place the plate of prawns on the rack and steam for 2 1/2 mins.
Turn off the heat. Unwrap the baking sheet, and add the chopped spring onions on top of the prawns.
In a small pan, heat up 2 TBsp of oil over high heat. Add 4 TBsp of chopped garlic to the pan and fry till golden brown. Remove the crispy garlic and set aside.
