Soya Sauce King Prawns (醬油大蝦)

Simply Fresh!!! Soya Sauce King Prawns

My mum always brought me some fresh frozen seafood from my food heaven hometown whenever she visited me.

One of the seafood I love is XL tiger prawn with 10cm in length. The meat texture is much alike lobster. Chewy but slight tough! Steaming and Stir frying XL tiger prawns are probably the best cooking methods. Bare in mind that cooking prawns with their shells if possible as to retain the flavor, moisture and juices.

Thinking of these air flown frozen XL tiger prawns had been in my freezer for almost two months. Shall I steam?? Hmmm, I guess NO-NO.. they would not taste as fresh!!!

Hmm.. Decision made!! Quick and easy cooking method!
