Drunken Prawns

Here's another recipe for my 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.
Ingredients :
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

Method :
(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.

(3) finally, increase the heat and then add in prawns once the soup starts boiling. Stir prawns for a few seconds, then keep the lid cover and off the heat.
(4) shake the pot for a few seconds and then set aside till time to serve. This to prevent the prawns from over cooked.

As always hubby has something to complain about. He asked me to remove the intestine (at the back of the prawns) before cooking it the next time. Phew..... then I asked him again if he wants me to peel the shell & head off as well.*wink*  (What a nasty wife I am!) hahaha..... Anyway, hope you guys will love it too.
