homemade red yeast wine. A classic chinese dish called drunken prawns. Funny name, right? I'm sure you know exactly what it means......Prawns get drunk in the wine. This dish is very often served in many restaurants by using life prawns. Sorry but NOT me! However, I am highly recommending tiger prawns for this recipe due to the sweetness of the prawns itselves.
So, here's what I did.
500gm fresh tiger prawns (medium size)
3/4 cup homemade red yeast wine
1 tbsp homemade red yeast paste
3/4 cup water
1/2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tspn vegetables granules
a pinch of salt & pepper
2 tbsp fried ginger & ginger oil
(1) combine red yeast wine, red yeast paste, water, sugar, granules, salt & pepper and fried ginger oil & ginger to a 1.5 Litre pot, and bring it to boil.
(2) reduce heat and let to simmer for another 5 minutes to increase thick aroma to the soup.
(4) shake the pot for a few seconds and then set aside till time to serve. This to prevent the prawns from over cooked.
