Steamed Prawns & Stir Fry Chinese Mustard For Dinner

One Friday evening, hubby was in the vicinity of the evening market in our area and he happened to pass by the fish stall. He came home with a kilogram of big seawater prawns. I kept half in the freezer and used half to cook for dinner.  I have not been cooking regularly. Not surprising that my mind went blank when I looked at the prawns. In the end, I peeled off the shells, leaving the tails intact.
 This lazy me decided to steam the prawns. I marinated the prawns with salt, sugar, pepper, chopped ginger, chopped garlic, oyster sauce, sesame oil and Chinese cooking wine before I steamed the prawns. Fortunately, the prawns tasted good for both of us, no complaint.
I cooked Chinese mustard (gai choy) with garlic, ginger slices, chicken gizzard and liver and when all is cooked, I add in the egg, stirred and dished out to serve. That lone egg has been sitting in my fridge for some time. We ate these 2 dishes with steamed rice.

But the good man - what a different story!

For the good man - the blameless, the upright,

the man of peace - he has a wonderful future ahead of him.

For him there is a happy ending.

(Psalm 37:37, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. Are prawns the same our shrimp? I admit to being intimidated were I to have them presented to me as they were to you! That mix of spices and oil must be the secret of making things taste so good!
    Our sunsets are a couple of hours earlier than yours....
