Salted Prawns

Prawns these days are getting expensive.  When you pay S$13-S$14 for a kilo prawns, you are no longer getting big prawns like in the past.  At this price, you are actually getting like those you used to pay at S$8/kg.

It is pretty scary how fast inflation is hitting Singapore.  Everything is getting expensive.  No wonder we are one of the most expensive city to live in.

When I was still single and living with my parents, a dish that I really love was Salted Prawns.

It is extremely easy to prepare and taste just so yummy and I am introducing it to my kids one of my childhood dish.



What you need:


1kg prawns, de vein and cut off the sharp ends.
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp salt

0.5 - 1 tsp salt (adjust to your liking)
2 tbsp water
Oil

Method:

Drain prawns well after cleaning.  

Marinate with sesame oil and salt for 1/2 hour.

In a very hot wok, add in the prawns and pan fried until just turns pink.  Flip and cook the same.

Add in salt and water.  Bring to boil.  Gently mixing prawns with the salt water until water dried up.

You can either charred the prawns a little or serve immediately.


Cheers
