Drunken Prawns with Wolfberries and Red Dates
Some people ask me why I post images of raw foods as opposed to delightfully photoshoped pictures. Well, I wanna show the freshness of the ingredients and to show that cooking is all about the beginning (as well as the journey) when you are about to cook because everyone will cook and their individual outcomes may all look different.
Don’t worry, I am sure you will make this dish look absolutely fabulous.
So drunken prawns with wolfberry and dates! Is this difficult to do? No way. It’s so easy I could have cooked it with my eyes closed. Try it.
Freshest Prawns in the world
Handful of Wolfberries
4-5 Red Dates
Quarter cup of Hakka Rice Wine
1. Shave off the whiskers of the prawns. If you don’t want to, that’s fine. But they look better clean shaven.
2. Arrange them in a steaming platter. Drop in the wolfberries and the red dates. Drizzle the rice wine all over the prawns. Place the plate in the steamer and steam for about 5 minutes and leave it there for another 1 minute with fire off but lid on. Then serve.
3. Steaming times differ. Depending on the size of the prawns, also if the water is boiling, the type of rice wine used, etc.. Blah blah blah.. Okay Nuff said, enjoy the process. I am sure yours taste the best.
