Steamed Prawns In Egg Whites

A simple dish to prepare, yummy and you can enjoy the freshness of the prawns to the max
Great recipe for the coming Chinese New Year :)




Recipe is from GoodyFoodies

What you need:

Large tiger prawns (I used 8), trimmed, head and tail intact, shell on
1 inch old ginger, julienned
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp Shaoxing rice wine
1/2 shallots, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp cooking oil
spring onion to garnish (optional, I didn't use)

Method:
  1. Wash prawns, pat dry. Score the back of the prawns to expose the flesh
  2. Pour egg whites on the heatproof steaming dish. Arrange prawns over it. Scatter julienned ginger and salt on top. Pour over Shaoxing wine and sesame oil and let marinate for 15mins
  3. Sautee garlic and shallot over high heat til fragrant and pour over the prawns (excluding the oil)
  4. Steam the prawns over high heat for 5 mins or until cooked. Do not overcook the prawns, the texture will be hard and rubbery. Serve immediately



Yummy crunchy prawns. I like!
