Thursday, July 17, 2008

Prawns...there's so many ways to cook it...but this one comes to mind. There's something about prawns or seafood for that matter and butter & cheese..they just go well with each other, complimenting the taste giving the prawns (seafood) that luxury feel...ahh this dish will blow you away...

and a friend told me that this is a must have in a chinese restaurant so i must say it is that good...only when i made this, i've to make extra on the gravy coz my son simply LOVE this dish he had 2 servings and that's alot for a 2 years old!

Stir fry prawn with butter & cheese
What you need:

5-6 large tiger prawn devained
1/2 onion ( diced)
1 cup light milk
1/4c Kraft cheese - grated
3 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
3 tablespoons melted butter
Some corn starch (for coating the lobster pieces before deep frying)
Some chopped scallions
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste

This is how you do it:

Clean the prawn &de-vain it and you may chop it into pieces if you like. Coat the prawns with some corn starch and deep fry in very hot oil until 80% done or as soon as the shell turns red. Dish out and set aside.

Heat up a wok and add the melted butter. Toss in the chopped garlic, sliced onion and stir fry until aromatic (but before they turn brown). Add in the milk, bring it to boil, and then add in the fried lobster pieces. Lay the 4 pieces of cheese (or sprinkle cheese powder generously) on top of the prawns cover the wok on high heat and let it simmer for a few minutes or until the cheese melts and the sauce thickens. Stir and blend the cheese well with the prawns, add chopped scallion, salt and sugar to taste, remove and serve immediately.
