I like to eat.
Looking through my blog entries, that’s pretty obvious.
But a love for food doesn’t always mean I know how to make it. Never having ventured into the kitchen much, I survived on mostly pasta/sauces and ham sandwiches the entire time I was studying overseas.
If this was 60 years ago, in Chinese culture, I’d have been a spinster fo’ life.
Lately Moo has been ‘transferring’ some of her cooking skills on to me (or at least attempting to!). Today, I tried making soy-sauce shrimp. Although it was a tad too salty, it didn’t turn out too bad.
*Pats self on back*
- 16 large-sized prawns
- two cloves garlic, diced
- ginger, diced
- one cup Shaoxing wine
- 6 tbsp soy sauce
- cooking oil
- 2 stalks of spring onion, cut
- Cut off prawn legs and moustache (?feelers?). Deep-fry until golden brown. **I made the mistake of salting the prawns a little because I was worried it would be tasteless. When soy sauce was added, it turned out to be quite salty. :x
- Set aside and pat dry.
- Fry garlic and ginger til brown, then add prawns, soy sauce, Shaoxing wine and spring onion. Stir-fry and toss well.
- Once sauce reduces, turn off fire. Garnish and serve! :)
