Thai Style Stir Fry Garlic Prawns

I almost forgot about Little Thumbs Up event where this month we can cook anything with prawns. Prawns is my number one in the list when talking about seafood. I cannot miss it! :)

This simple recipe is from Tin Tin from Cooking Crave
Yummy and it goes so well with rice :)

What you need:

15-20 medium prawns, shelled, left the tail intact
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
7-8 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp oil for stir-frying
1 fresh red chili, minced

  1. Remove all of the prawn shell up to the tail
  2. Devein the prawns by running a sharp knife along the spine to remove the black "vein"
  3. Marinade the prawns with oyster sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, brown sugar, minced garlic, lime juice and fresh chili. Stir well to coat
  4. Heat some oil in a wok or frying pan. When it's hot, add the prawns with the marinade
  5. Stir-fry 2-3 minutes, or until shrimp are plump and turn pink. Do not overcook it, or the shrimps will turn rubbery. Serve warm with rice
Squeeze in more lime juice if prefer a more sourish taste and for those who loves spicy food, add in some bird's eye chilli chunks in it

This post is for Little Thumbs Up (LTU) An event initiated by Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids and Doreen from my little favourite DIY, hosted by Moon from Food Playground at this post.
