I am a seafood lover. I love crabs and prawns to bits, especially stir-fried with chilli, curry leaves and salted eggs. We use to drive all the way to the port area to savour those seafood from the famous and well-known seafood restaurant. Those seafood serves in the restaurant is simply mouth-watering, especially the crabs and prawns! This place is situated in the village area and the seafood restaurant is designed according to the village style. The area is cozy and full of authentic atmosphere. Some of them are over-looking the sea or the esplanade. Isn't it a good place to dine in?
Since I won't be able to make a trip there now. Thus, I cooked myself this simply delicious Wok-fried prawns with soy sauce (干煎蝦) to satisfy my crave! Why wok-fried? Because these prawns are stir-fried in a wok with other ingredients until fragrant! This dish will not has much gravy, it is indeed a dry prawn dish with flavourful taste. It is ready to savour in 10 minutes time. It gives you the bouncy prawns and juicy finger licking good shells too!
I noticed by selecting those fresh prawns from the sea will give you juicier and bouncier texture. Those prawns from the sea have hard shells and whiter & pinkish in colour compared to those rear in the ponds. Thus, to make a delicious, juicy and bouncy prawn dish, you need to select those fresh prawns from the sea. It definitely gives you the crunch bites in the mouth!
