Udang Masak Merah

My hubby not in favour of too much prawns in his diet.  Here I cooked only half portion of the recipe below. I believe this is a good recipe so I must cooked it and share with all.
The original recipe does not have pineapples but I add some cos' I like it with the masak merah paste that makes it sweet.  Very tasty sweet and sourish curry sauce goes well with steaming hot rice.
Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 77 with slight modification

3-4 tbsp oil
600 gm medium to big size prawn meat [according to your preference]

Hi Kimmy,

I'm surprise knowing that your husband didn't like prawns... I can't eat prawns due to my allergy and cook them with minimal contact for my husband and kids. Your Udang masak merah looks delicious :D


Kimmy said...

Hi Aunty Young, quite easy to cook this after you have prepared the spice ingredients. Really goes well with rice.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, It's quite like sambal prawns minus the belacan and assam juice. The taste is sourish sweet and spicy.

Kimmy said...

Hi Doris, I love prawns too. Any size prawn is okay with me.

Kimmy said...

Hi Gloria, seeing this dish makes me cook more rice, hehehe!

Kimmy said...

Hi Veronica, I did have an extra helping.

Kimmy said...

Hi Zoe, my hubby is allergic with prawns too. Good enough, others can have more share.

Hi Kimmy,
I can never cook half a recipe when it comes to prawns! We love prawns, though my hubby "tries" not to take too much.
This looks delicious, thanks for sharing!

Prawns with pineapples is a sure winner, must have been a very appetizing dish!

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, I have to cook half the recipe cos' there is only 3 in the family.

Kimmy said...

Hi Lite Home Bake, the pineapples are sweet and absorbed the flavours of the curry paste.

Hi Kimmy,
Your masak merah must be very special with the addition of pineapple. I could have extra bowl of steam rice with the curry gravy only!!


Kimmy said...

Hi Mui Mui, that's exactly what I did. Lots of the thick gravy over my steaming hot rice. Very appetising meal.
