Prawns in Plum Sauce

There was so much of  big prawns in my MIL's fridge which I need to clear.  I wouldn' t want to eat Assam Prawns or Sambal Udang  all the time, so why not give this a try.  Moreover, I can share this recipe with 3 food events hosted by fellow food bloggers this July.

Again this is another dish which I didn't know which is considered as Selangor/KL food until I saw it in this book 'Rasa Malaysia'.

500 gm big sea prawns - washed and dried
3 tbsp oil
5cm piece ginger - chopped
4-5 cloves garlic - chopped
some chopped coriander leaves and spring onions
Seasoning Sauce [combined]
1 tbsp each of dark soy sauce, light soy sauce and sugar
1 tsp salt
2-3 tbsp plum sauce

  1. Heat oil in wok, fry prawns until they turned red.  Dish out and leave enough oil to fry ginger and garlic until aromatic and brown.
  2. Return the fried prawns and toss well to mix with the seasoning sauce.  Stir well and add in the chopped coriander leaves and spring onions.
  3. Serve immediately.

This is real yummy. Didn't know that it's a Selangor dish too! Have a great weekend, Kimmy.

Hi Ivy, I enjoyed the fried garlic and ginger. Very tasty and not oily like those at the Chu Char stalls. You too have a relaxing weekend.

Kimmy, so easy but so good! I think I have eaten this dish before. Must try when I can get big prawns.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, sauce and prawns are all so good. I should have increased the sauce ingredients.

Hi Hemalata, the gravy is good with rice.

Hi Joyce, my niece ate the most even though I planned for equal share among the family.

Kimmy said...

Hi Alice, hmmm, you too love prawns?

Hi Kimmy! Does this taste like "Har Lok"? If you know what I'm referring to...

Kimmy said...

Hi Alvin, quite similar but minus the aroma of lemongrass. This tasted better than 'Har Lok'
