This recipe I am going to share with you today is a very common in Chinese dish preparation. The use of ginger and scallions makes the dish flavorful and very fragrant, riding of the fish smell from the seafood. Hope you enjoy it.
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes
- 1 1/2 lb Large Tiger Prawns, peeled and deveined, leaving tails intact
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sherry or any red wine of your preference
- 1 tbsp minced ginger
- 1/4 cup chopped green onions
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 egg (free-ranged), beaten
- 2 cups 100% pure sunflower oil for deep-frying and stir-frying

- 1 tablespoon minced ginger
- 1/2 cup scallion, cut into 2 inch pieces
- 2 tablespoons sherry

Combine first group of ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.
Remove prawns from marinade.
Dredge in flour then dip into lightly beaten egg then again on flour and fry in hot oil for about 30-45 seconds on each side, until prawns is completely opaque and has changed in color. Drain in paper towel or cookie rack to remove excess oil.
In a skillet or wok, heat 2 tbsp oil and slowly fry ginger in low heat until fragrant. Add garlic and scallion, saute until garlic is slightly browned and scallions are wilted. Add the rest of the ingredients except for cornstrach slurry. When the sauce starts to bubble add slurry and simmer until sauce thickens. Toss in the fried prawns and serve immediately with steamed jasmine or any wild rice.
