Here’s the part 2 of the salted egg yolk dishes, the other half of the sauce from the last salted egg yolk chicken video is for.
These days you see salted egg yolk in so many fusion dishes –  salted egg fries, salted egg waffles, salted egg everything, really. But let’s look at what REALLY started this salted egg trend – Salted Egg Yolk Prawns!
Another tasty and finger licking zi char goodie, we recommend using large prawns, so that you have a juicier and plumper result. You can cook it with or without the shell, it’s a matter of preference. For this recipe we used rice flour so that we get a better crunch when the prawns are deep-fried.
Best served for a big group of friends or family, cook enough for all to share and you’ll have yourself a fabulous meal.
