400 – 500g large prawns cleaned and
2 heaped teaspoons crushed garlic
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon olive oil
good grinding of black pepper
Get some water boiling furiously on the stove
or your steamer
really sending it.
On a plate that will fit inside your steamer
you want to layer
your prawns covering the entire plate.
Whisk together all of the rest of the
ingredients in a small bowl
to really combine the flavours and then pour
the sauce over the
prawns evenly, leaving nice little mounds of
galic on the top.
Place the plate into your steamer carefully
being careful not to
burn yourself. You may want to remove the
steamer first or take
off the layer for the plate if you are using
an electric steamer.
Steam them for ¾ minutes or so until they
are pink and firm.
The tricky part is removing the plate without
burning yourself so
Thats it, fantastic fresh garlic prawns. You
can also chop up a
handful of coriander leaves to top it off if
you are serving it
with rice or yellow rice.
If you do burn yourself the best thing to do
is to mix bicarb of
soda with water from the tap into a thick
paste and cover the
burn. It’s amazing, it takes away the sting
