Beer-steamed Prawns: 4 ingredient, 4-minute cooking prawns (shrimps) steamed in beer. Click here for the ful...
This recipe is courtesy of my sis Amelia, and showcase easy cooking at its best with only four ingredients – prawns, ginger, beer and salt. This is a family favourite recipe of hers, and it is so easy that she can describe the steps in just a few SMSes. With so few ingredients, the goodness of the prawns really shines through so buy the freshest prawns that your money can buy for this dish! For me, fresh prawns are found at the wet market. The dish is quick cooking too, as I steamed them for only about 4 minutes and they are ready to serve. For best results, prawns are steamed with shells on so the only “troublesome” aspect of this recipe will be to devein the prawns by making a small incision towards the back of the prawn and then using a tooth pick to find & pull out the veins. The results will be well worth your effort :)
