Steamed Prawns with Egg White

Original Recipe by Amy Beh

2-3 large freshwater prawns, cleaned and halved

3 egg whites

200ml evaporated milk

¾ tsp salt

dash of pepper

A little monosodium glutamate (optional)

1 tsp Shao Hsing wine

1 Tbsp sesame oil

1 Tbsp chopped spring onion

Arrange the halved prawns on a heat-proof dish. Sprinkle salt, pepper and monosodium glutamate over the prawns.

Combine evaporated milk and egg white in a bowl. Beat lightly with a fork until well combined. Pour the mixture over the prawns.

Steam over rapidly boiling water on high heat for 6-7 minutes or until prawns change colour and are cooked.

Remove the dish and add the wine and sesame oil. Add chopped spring onions and serve immediately.
