{CNY Special} Fried Prawn in Sweet Sauce 干煎明虾

This is a traditional Chinese New Year dish that my mother in law cooks every year. This time I'm determined to learn from her, who knows one day it may be my turn to prepare the CNY eve dinner. :P

It is unbelievably easy and but is absolutely delicious!

Preparation time: 10 minutes 
Cooking time: 10 minutes 

• 12 large fresh prawn, cleaned 
• 2 glove garlic, thinly sliced
• 1 thumb ginger, thinly sliced 

For garnish:
• 1/4 Red chili, thinly sliced 
• some parsley leaves 

For sauce:
• 1 tablespoon soy sauce
• 1/2 tablespoon dark soy sauce
• 1 tablespoon oyster sauce 
• 1 teaspoon sugar 
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 tablespoon Shao Xin wine 
• 1 tablespoon corn flour, diluted with some water 

The Making:

1. Heat up 3 tablespoon of cooking oil in the wok, put the prawns into the wok and cook for about 3 minutes till cook (turns red). Dish out the prawn and place them on a dish.

2. Using remaining oil in the wok, sautée the garlic and ginger till fragrance, then add in the rest of the ingredients for sauce (except the corn orb starch).

3. Boil the mixture on high heat till thicken, then add in the corn starch and stir to mix well.

4. Toss the prawn into the sauce and mix them up. Serve them on a plate and add some parsley & red chili for garnishing.

Ready to serve. Look at the complete 8 course dinner made by my amazing mother in law.. Simply irresistible!

Here's wishing you a happy Chinese New Year, may you and your loved ones be blessed with abundance of good luck and always in great health.

Friendly Reminder...
• ensure your little one is not allergic to prawn or crustaceans, my little E will have rashes after eating prawn so he would have to pass on this dish.
