Prawns at Home

We bought some live prawns and I mixed them with some salt, sugar, fish sauce, chili, and lemongrass and soaked them for about 10 minutes. After that, I stir fried them on high in the wok until all the liquid was gone and they were a bit dark (that's the color from the sugar) which means they were done. They should be a little bit sweet, a little salty and I think you should squeeze some lemon on the prawns to make it even better. This is a common dish which most Vietnamese can do well.

Thank you for your visit and your kind words; thank you as well for the recipe! I am just starting to experiment a bit with things I haven't tried, and believe I'll try this one with some shrimp!

Yeh with those prawns, my favourite way to eat them is to cover my rice with the beautiful sauce and just eat it like that! I don't even need the prawns HAHA
