Fried Prawn with Ginger Sauce Recipe

Home-cooked Fried Prawn with Ginger Sauce
Home-cooked Fried Prawn with Ginger Sauce (????)

What a gingery indulgence! For those who adore pungent, spicy, sweet gingery aroma, you'll find this dish intriguing. As counterpoint to plumpy, opulent sweetness of prawns trapped inside the shell, the outer coating which is concocted from juicy ginger puree and biting bird's eye chillies, is hot enough to make you experience more than a tingling tug at your taste sensation!

Here's some trick to perfect this shrimp treat! Oil must be hot enough during deep-frying to ensure prawns are thoroughly cooked to preserve its juiciness and crispiness. Then under deft fire control, coat the fried prawns with ginger puree and bird's eye chillies mixture briskly and dish up in no time, to prevent them from over-cooked.

Here's the how-to recipe for you to cook fried prawn with ginger sauce (????) at home.

Ingredients :
500g medium sized prawns
5 cups oil for deep-frying
150g young ginger, skin removed, mix with 50ml water and blend into puree
1 tbsp chopped bird's eye chillies
3 tbsp chopped spring onions (scallions)

Seasoning :
1 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp Shaoxing wine

Method :

1. Deep-fry prawns until golden brown. Dish up and drain on kitchen paper towels to discard excess oil.

2. Leave 1 tbsp oil in wok, saute ginger puree and bird's eye chillies until fragrant. Add in seasoning, prawns and stir-fry at high heat until well-mixed. Stir in chopped spring onions (scallions) and stir briskly, dish up and serve with steamed rice.
