Honey Prawn

This is the first time I am trying out some Chinese preparation with prawn. My hubby is a big fan of prawn as well as Chinese food.We Had this dish when we visited Mainland China last time and since then I was thinking to make an attempt to prepare this unusual combination in my own style and believe me it came out so delectable that it got vanished within few minutes. It can be served as a starter in any get together or parties where it will definitely steal the show. It is also an awesome side dish with any Chinese main course.


King Prawns
300 gms
Garlic paste
2 tbsp
Soy sauce
6 to 8
1 tbsp
Tomato sauce
1 tbsp
3 tbsp
As per taste
Red chili paste
1 tsp
2 tbsp
Pepper powder
Sesame seeds (optional)
1 tsp
1 tsp

1.Peel the prawn and devein them. Wash properly and drain out excess water..
2. Take bowl and add prawns, soy sauce, tomato sauce, chili paste, garlic paste, cornflour and salt (Check the salt before adding more salt as soy sauce contain salt in it). Add a beaten egg and mix well and let it marinate for an hour.

3. Heat oil in a pan and drop marinated prawn dipped in cornflour batter in the oil and deep fry in low flame for 4 to 5 minutes until become golden brown. Take it out in a tissue paper and keep aside.

4. Heat little oil in a pan and add chopped garlic. Fry for few seconds and add honey and immediately add fried prawns and pepper powder. Now toss it properly so that prawn pieces get evenly coated with honey.Mind that the preparation will be dry. Turn off the flame and spread sesame seeds which is optional.

Serve hot  as starter or as side dish with noodles and fried rice. Enjoy making  and having this.
