    In the link they missed one of the key ingredient...thats the egg yolk. :-)

    Most its a slightly different recipe. Hmmm on a second thought...I think some places dont use the yolk.

    Instead of prawn, chicken can also be used. Marinated is similar manner and with crispy egg yolk fried in butter sprinkled on-top. I think the dish is called "Lai-yow kai"..in Canto.

    Salt & Pepper Prawns

    I would like to share this recipe that I have tried. It was published in The Star and created by Amy Beh. The prawns tasted like "yim kok" (Cantonese style of cooking with salt). Very delicious! Tasted as good as those "yim kok ha" that I tried in Cantonese restaurants in Guangzhou. My family likes it a lot. Hope you like it too.

    Salt & Pepper Prawns

    Ingredients:
    • 500g medium large prawns

    • Cooking oil

    • 2 tbsp sesame oil

    • 2 stalks spring onion, chopped

    • 1 red chilli, seeded and chopped

    • 3 cloves garlic, chopped

    • 1 tbsp salt

    • 1 tbsp pepper

    • 1 tsp Chinese five spice powder

    • 1 tsp sugar


    Marinade:
    • 1 tbsp ginger juice

    • ˝ tsp salt

    • ˝ tsp pepper

    • 4 tbsp cornflour



    Method:

    1. Trim prawns and season with marinade for about 10 minutes.

    2. Combine salt, pepper and five spice powder in a non-stick saucepan. Fry until heated through for about 30 seconds. Remove, leave aside and stir in sugar to combine.

    3. Heat cooking oil in a wok until hot and deep-fry prawns in batches until crispy for 2-3 minutes. Remove and drain from oil.

    4. Heat a clean wok with sesame oil. Sauté garlic until fragrant. Return prawns to the wok and add pre-fried combined salt and pepper mixture, chopped spring onion and chilli. Toss and fry briefly.

    If you want to see a photo that I have taken of this recipe after I cooked it, you can view it here.
