How to make Dry Fried Prawns
First chop young ginger, garlic and spring onions.
Wash prawns well and snip off whiskers and legs with a pair of food scissors.
Place prawns in a bowl and season with salt. Leave for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. And we re ready to fry the prawns!
Heat up oil till just smoking. Gently fry the prawns in the wok for just one minute. Do not overcook the prawns.
Immediately remove prawns and drain on paper towels.
Retain 2 tablespoons of the oil in the wok. Reheat oil till smoking hot and saute the chopped garlic and ginger until fragrant.
Add in the seared prawns. Gently and quickly, mix the prawns well.
Pour the sauce over the prawns and quickly toss to mix well and until most of the sauce has been absorbed.
Scoop out onto a serving plate and garnish with chopped spring onions and serve immediately when hot. ENJOY!
