Creamy Butter Prawns – 奶油蝦

Creamy Butter Prawns is tasty and delicious. It is a simple and easy dish to prepare for dinner or to serve at a party. The hint of chilli pepper flake flavour is so good, and it is just the right amount of spicy. Alternatively, you can add paprika powder.

Ps: This is a sweet yet savoury rendition, if aren’t a fan of sweet dishes, you can reduce the amount of rice syrup or add a lil zest 🙂 This recipe is so easy to make, and doesn’t take long at all. It is best served with rice and drizzle the sauce over it!
