Steamed Garlic Prawn

This is an easy recipe for prawn lovers like me. It is delicious and a finger licking good dish that goes perfectly well with a bowl of hot rice. This is the kind of dish that I will never grow tired of =)


  • 14 pieces of medium size prawn (clean, deveined, butterfly cut and pat dry)
  • 20g minced garlic
  • 4 tbs oil
  • 20g water
  • 25g oyster sauce
  • 10g shaoxing wine
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 5g sesame oil
  • 5g julienne ginger
  • spring onion


  • In a sauce pan, heat up 4tbs oil until very hot, pour it on your minced garlic, set aside
  • Add the water, oyster sauce, shoaxing wine, sugar and sesame oil together. Pour it into the minced garlic oil mixture.
  • Prepare a shallow dish, lay all the prawn on the dish, put some garlic sauce mixture on each prawn. You may pour the rest of the sauce on the dish if there are any leftover.
  • Place all the julienned ginger on top
  • Cover and steam at high heat for about 10 minutes or until the prawn are cooked. Do not overcook the prawn.
