Method

-Run the raw prawns under the cold tap water until the water runs clear. 

– Gently fry the garlic and red onion in a frying pan with the oil. Until the onion turns translucent. 

-Add the water, palm sugar. Bring it to boil.

-Turn the heat up to high heat, in goes the prawns and gently fold all the ingredients together.

-Once the prawns cooked, put the sugar, salt, oyster sauce and fish sauce, stir well. Cooked in medium to high heat, keep stirring until the sauce become thicken (Approx 12-15 minutes).

-Lastly, add a pinch of black pepper and butter. Fold all the ingredients together. By this time the prawns’ shell should be translucent with a slight crisp. Serve Caramelised Prawns with a spicy main course and Thai Jasmine rice.

 

Tip:

– Make sure you get the fresh raw king prawns if possible.

-Caramelised prawns have got a crisp shell. So Thais tended to eat the whole body of these prawns.

-Keep an eye on the pan while cooking this dish as it has got a lot of sugar which easily burnt.

-It is my personal preference to garnish with chopped coriander and a squeeze of lemon.

-I always encourage everyone to use a high-grade Thai seasoning.Happy cooking.🙋🏽
