Herbal prawns

Standard

Here’s another favourite, from ellenaguan, it’s easy to whip up, though I need to pay attention to the time it takes to cook prawns. I’ve been over-cooking them the past few times!

Ingredients: (Serves 2)
300g of Medium Fresh/Live Green Prawn
5 – 6 Slices Of Dang Gui(当归)
5 Red Dates(红枣), seeds removed
1/2 Tablespoon Of Gou Qi Zi(杞子)
50ml Of Hua Diao Jiu

Methods:
1. Pre-soaked the herbs in the hua diao jiu for at least 30 minutes to an hour for the wine to absorb the aroma of the herbs.
2. Trim and wash the prawns then pat dry and arrange them in a steam tray/plate in single layer.(do not overlay them as it will cause uneven cooking time during steaming)
3. Arrange the herbs on top of the prawns and pour over the remaining wine on it.
4. Steam over boiling water for about 4-5 minutes, remove and served immediately.

Note:
If your prawns are kept in the fridge before steaming, remember to remove it from the fridge at least 10 – 15 minutes before hand and to let it cool off and pour away any of the water in the tray or plate before arranging the herbs on top.
