I love prawns, small or big but I am not very good in cooking them. I’m still learning. Have learned a few so far and that’s enough to make me happy. There’s only one person who always provokes my desire to learn more prawn dishes and that is Drick from http://dricksramblingcafe.blogspot.com. He gets fresh prawns in his place and cooks them often. On top of that, he often have parties and cooks for his friends. If you love seafood, try to be his friend….the best is to be his neighbour!
I bought a packet of cooked, frozen king prawns the other day, out of impulse. It looked so good that I couldn’t resist the temptation, even though I still have a packet of tiger prawns in my freezer. I told myself that I would cook for dinner. But I had no clue how to cook them. When I reached home, I opened the fridge and found a big marrow which must be at least 4 or 5 days in the fridge. I was excited to try it out with the king prawns. Did it come out good? Absolutely! My daughter liked it very much. Here’s my recipe to share. It is simple, easy and quick.
2t corn flour
Add the water and flour in a bowl and mix well. Add the eggs and beat lightly with a fork or small hand whisk.
250g cooked tiger prawns
fried garlic or ginger oil
a handful of coriander leaves
I bought a big marrow and used only half here. Peel the marrow, cut into half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds inside. Slice it into quite thin slices. Marrow is a very delicious vegetable that has a natural sweetness. It’s one of my family’s favourite vegetables.
Heat up a few tablespoons of the garlic or ginger oil. Add the marrow and keep frying. Add a few tablespoons of water and keep stirring. When it’s a little soft, add the prawns, coriander leaves and seasoning.
Give a quick stir and pour in the egg mixture in Ingredients A. Keep stirring until it boils. Dish up and serve hot. We had it with rice and it was really delicious. The coriander leaves gives it a very beautiful flavour while the sauce was fine, creamy and tasty.
Ingredients C (seasoning)
1t chicken stock
1t sesame oil
