A simple dish that everyone can cook and doesn’t take up a chunk of your time.
The key to this dish is FRESHNESS. Try to get hold of sea prawns as they definitely taste better than the farmed ones. It is also important to get large prawns so that they won’t get overcooked too easily during the steaming process!
As overcooked prawns taste powdery, we definitely wanna avoid that. You will know when your prawns are perfectly cooked if they are crunchy to the bite!
Combine with the garlic and soy sauce mixture to give it the aroma and slight saltiness this dish needs.
