Steamed Garlic Prawns

Both my sisters are seafood fanatic, especially crab and prawns. They can both eat 4kg worth of crab, prawns and shellfish in a sitting. We Chinese love steaming our seafood, and believe that steaming is probably the ‘best’ way to enjoy most seafood in all its’ natural ‘sweetness. Steaming is not only easy, it is also a very healthy cooking technique.  This Steamed Garlic Prawns is my elder sister CM’s go-to prawn recipe.

The sheer simplicity of preparation will blow your mind away with an simple yet flavourful prawn dish. Make minced garlic oil, pour the garlic over the prawns and steam for 5 minutes. Sounds simple enough, right? The only catch – mincing garlic is a rather tedious task. Time to get out your chopper or food processor if you have one.

This dish should of course be served piping hot, preferably right from the stove top to the dining table. So I suggest that you steam this dish just before dinner is served as the prawns take such a short time to cook. Do remember to avoid overcooking the prawns as there is really nothing that can be done to rescue rubbery, overcooked prawns. Check on the doneness of the prawns at 5 minutes, if the flesh still looks translucent, steam for another 1-2 minutes. -justasdelish.comNatural memory enhancer
