We love food on skewers. The taste of sweet tender meat char grilled to perfection and still very juicy in center. But, what holds us back is quite tedious to do it at home.

The spicy sour sweet flavour of the sauce enhances the sweetness of the prawn meat. The lemongrass skewers imparts its subtle fragrance to another level. Serve it with a small bowl of the Thai Dipping sauce. Delish to the max!

The Meatmen Hae Bee Hiam was so delicious, that we started thinking of ways to cook it. We love the crunchiness and freshness of Wing Beans. Wing Beans are best paired with chili, they compliment each other.
You may substitute Wings Beans with Chinese Brinjal, long beans or even petai.Meat can be substituted with your favourite seafood. The only ingredient you can’t substitute is The Meatmen Hae Bee Hiam. There is a spice in it that heightens the taste of this dish!!
Hae Bee Hiam,is a perfect marriage of dried shrimps and spices. Its spicy, salty, a tinge of sourness with a lingering umami taste to tease the palate. It’s a popular condiment in Singapore and Malaysia. Some hardcore lovers have it with just steamed hot white rice or simple plain porridge, or even toast.
