Hi Soke Hah, this dish is good for my family. I don't have to fight for the prawns cos' I love the onions and ginger more than the prawns.

Kimmy said...

Hi Lite Home Bake, you too have a relaxing weekend. Simple and homey dishes are best for busy times.

Kimmy said...

Hi Ivy, the prawns can actually be deep fried then quickly stir fried with the other ingredients. More fragrant but slightly oily.

Hi Kimmy, for me combination of taucu and onions can never go wrong. Plus prawns is one of my fav seafood... I would definitely love this dish.

Hi Yen, I love prawns more than fish cos' no tiny bones and the meat is chewy sweet.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, taucheong is good with seafood and even meat like chicken and pork. You even have a choice in texture [coarse or fine] and taste [salty or sweet].

Kimmy said...

Hi Mui Mui, I love prawns especially the very fresh ones - they are sweet and has a bite.

Zoe said...

Hi Kimmy,

Totally agree that the natural sweetness of taucu makes all stir fry very delicious...

Your simple stir fried taucu prawns looks very homely and good :D
