Drunken herbal prawns is another easy-to-make dish that require minimal ingredients to get right, but it is very important to get fresh prawns. Many people swear by using live prawns so that they can get them ‘drunk’ before cooking them, but honestly as long as they are fresh they will do!
The key to making this great is not to overcook them – as the claypot retains it’s heat even after you’re done cooking, so keeping it 90% cooked is a good gauge. By adding chinese herbs and shaoxing wine with the prawns, you’ll end up experiencing it’s aromatic flavours, which is nothing short of fascinating!
