Using heaps of garlic, few knobs of butter and everyday seasoning like fish sauce, soy sauce and sugar, the heavenly aroma is enough to make me wanna devour the crustaceans straight from the pan.

There’s something about the combination of butter and soy sauce that create this wonderful flavor bomb. Fish sauce gives this dish an additional umami-ness so please try not to skip this ingredient!

 

 

Ingredients:
12 prawns – head removed, de-vein with shell on
12 cloves garlic – peeled and pounded
1 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp red pepper flakes / powder
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 tbsp white wine (optional)

Sauce:
1 tsp fish sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sugar

To finish:
Chopped green onion / coriander
Black pepper (as much as you like)
Few squirts of fresh lemon juice

Serves 3 – 4

Recipe loosely adapted from: Taste Asian Food 

 

The line up.

Remove head and de-vein the shrimps while keeping the shells on.

Mix corn flour and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Toss with shrimp evenly and set aside.

 

Using a mortar and pestle, pound the garlic into bits. Alternatively, you could chop them with a knife.

I like to leave some skin on the garlic for additional crispiness.

In a large skillet or pan, add in butter and olive oil. Turn on heat to medium.

Once the butter is almost melted, add in garlic and cook over low medium heat until golden and crispy but not burnt. Remove and set aside.

 

Like so.

Turn up heat to high and add in shrimps. Cook for 30 seconds before adding in white wine.

 

When the shrimps start to turn pink, add in sauce and mix evenly.

 

Cook for another minute and add in fried garlic and black pepper.

 

Toss well and turn off heat. Squeeze lemon juice and sprinkle the chopped green onion and coriander.

Serve warm.
