Creamy Fragrant Butter Prawns @ 'Lai Yao Har'

I was checking on those huge prawns at the wet market the other day. It was so much cheaper after the Chinese New Year. The prices went down about 40%-50% depending on sizes. Just the right timing for me to get some for my family to enjoy especially my boy. His favourite!

And here's what I did.
Ingredients :
1/2 kg large prawns
handful of curry leaves
a few birds eye chilies, cut small
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1-1/2 tspn curry powder
1/2 tspn turmeric powder
1 tbsp sugar
salt to taste
1/2 cup heavy cream
Method :
(1) fry all prawns in few batches untill cooked.
(2) preheat non-stick frying pan with butter.
(3) stir in chopped garlic, curry leaves, curry powder & turmeric powder, saute untill fragrant.
(4) add in heavy cream & sugar and simmer untill thick & creamy.
(5) off the heat, stir in fried prawns & mix well.

This creamy butter prawns is one of the most popular seafood dish over here in Malaysia & Singapore. The sauce is so flavourful and tasty delicious. I bet you will never had enough of this. But before cooking, a proper cleaning need to be done to the prawns. Make sure you cut the back of the prawns about three quarter deep and pull out the intestine neatly. The deepness of the cut will gives a nice curl to the prawns after cooked. It's best to leave the head stick to it, unless if you're making stir fried. I'm sure this is something irresistible to all. Enjoy!
