Salted Egg Yolk Prawns (黄金虾)

“How can you miss the ‘Laughter‘ during this festive season?! Eat ‘Ha‘ (Prawn in Cantonese), and let it smother you with laugther and most of all,… the wealth.”

One of my readers, was checking out salted egg yolk prawns recipe, and I couldn’t remember that I had actually posted the recipe since a while ago (laughing). Oh well, I did tell her about it, just few days back. And this time, I am going to post another version of salted egg yolk prawns, for the healthy you, and all, for this coming Lunar New Year, of course (smile)!

I’ve also create an auspicious dish name for this dish, in Chinese, 黄金炒虾. It simply means stir-fry prawns with ‘gold’. The name emphasizes on the ‘gold‘ this time. Chinese likes good and symbolical things or words relating to gold, wealth, happiness, laughter, good luck, and etc, during the festive. I hope you like the dish and its name. :) read more

Sautéed Prawns in Yuzu Sauce (柚子蜜煎大虾)

“Not much an appetite to eat? I have cooked these juicy shrimps with some tantalizing citrus sauce to whet your appetite.”

This recipe I saw in a TVB cooking show (created by a popular HK celebrity) represents an interesting variation on the conventional sweet & sour flavor of the prawn dishes. This recipe incorporates the rich and refreshing marmalade, and good thing is, you probably need not to purposely buy this ingredient for the dish, it might already been seating in your drink pantry all these while… What this recipe add is the Honeyed Yuzu (called it Yuja in Korean) marmalade that uses to make drinks. read more

Black Pepper Prawns

“A variation of my Black Pepper Pork Dish. The seafood version, this time.”

The Black Pepper prawn is the best option, if you have craving for shellfish instead. And, this recipe takes full advantage of having the flavor packed in the prawns, along with the natural aromatics such as capsicum and onion to infuse the base for refreshing and fragrant sauce with the natural sweetness.

Its peppery taste wasn’t too overwhelming. Not too spicy, the dish wasn’t too wet, too.

Simply an exotic restaurant-dish to be made at home, easily! read more

Pan-Roasted Prawns (干燒明蝦)

“Sometimes you just need to fix a quick, yet, luscious, dinner meal for the family..”

Go into just about any restaurants of all cuisines, you are sure to find prawns on the menu. But ordering of seafood, especially prawns (large shrimps) dishes, also mean to lighten your wallet before leaving the reataurant. How about cooking up a ‘restaurant-style’ seafood dish for the family? :)

This is simple to fix and deliciuos to taste large prawns dish, especially if you like the prawns to be packed with robust flavour with mild spiciness in it. Even though the prawns are to be served dry without any gravy, you may actually serve the dish with some cut limes, for squeezing its juice over the prawns upon tucking in, for more zesty flavour. Just to be reminded that with or without the lime, the prawns are juicy and moist enough to taste as it is pan-roasted (in Chinese, we called it 干燒 ‘Gan Shao’, which means dry-roast) where the prawns will be roasted and crisped on the shell, but tender and moist interiorly. read more
