Recipe from Guilt?

During the weekend, I was feeling guilty for leaving babe alone at home for so long and I know that most likely I will traveling again next week. So, decided to cook something different. I actually bought some prawn the week before when I was in the wet market. If you remember, that was the first time I went to the wet market in Menjalara and promptly got myself lost! Anyways, on Saturday morning, babe actually woke up at 10.30am and usually when he is awake. Reason, me light sleeper lar. Abit of noise will wake me up and very hard for me to go back to sleep.

So, after lazing around for awhile, babe suddenly say he want to eat the mud crab again. So, around 11.30am, we went to the wet market. Bought more crabs and some pork (of course). And this time, since he is around, we managed to get back by 12.30pm. Immediately, I went to the kitchen to clean up and cook for our late lunch (brunch actually since we not yet have breakfast). Decided to cook the mud crab in kicap (soya sauce) this time and also cook big huge prawn.

The prawn is really big and look juicy. Usually, I would just steam the prawn with some ginger and garlic. But since I bought the prawn a week ago, not so sure if it still fresh enough to steam. Instead, decided to cook it in a way the sauce is so thick that it will stick to the prawn. And since the best way to eat prawn is to peal it with your fingers, then all the gravy will stick to the fingers making it finger-licking-good!


The ingredient:
Chopped big onion
1 teaspoon of thick sweet soya cause
1 teaspoon oyster sauce
1 teaspoon chilli sauce
1 teaspoon tomato sauce
500gm large fresh water prawns
pepper and salt to taste

Stir fry the chopped onion in some cooking oil. Add in the prawn and stir fry till the prawn are half cook (reddish/pink color). Add in all the sauces and fry till it is cook. Add pepper and salt to taste. DONE! Easy or not? And it is definitely finger-licking-good!! YUMM...
