Drunken Prawn Soup For Dinner

I had one packet of prawns sitting in the freezer. I also harvested 2 white eggplants or white brinjals and some sweet potato leaves. What is the simplest recipe to cook the prawns? Should I pan fry the prawns? Should I steamed the prawns? Or should I cook drunken prawn soup? Hmmm... I would like to try drunken prawn soup but will it taste good? Okay! If I don't try, then I wouldn't know.
My drunken prawn soup!
Fry the ginger slices with a little sesame seed oil till slightly brown.
Add 2 bowl of water (just enough for 2 bowls of soup).
Let it boil over low fire to extract the flavour from the ginger. 
Add the prawns with shells removed.
When the soup started to boil again, add salt and sugar to taste.
Then add the preferred amount of Chinese cooking wine to the soup.
When the soup started to boil again, off the fire.
Hubby and I enjoyed the prawn soup very much.
We finished off every drop of the soup and all the prawns.
Blanched sweet potato leaves surrounded by blanched white eggplants.
Lazy me just drizzled a bit of soya sauce over the dish.
Steamed Ponni rice for 2 people.
That was my simple home cooked dinner for 2.

The following morning sky photos are for joining Skywatch Friday.
Took these photos at the recreational park.
This view is opposite the rising sun at 7.15 am.
View of the Kledang hills.
On the opposite side, the rising sun blocked by dark clouds at 7.30 am.
7.30 am - dark clouds looming over Klendang hills.
8.20 am - low clouds descending on the hills.
Heavy downpour and strong wind at 3 pm.
The strong wind did this damage to my plant.
My yellow buttercup flower plant broke and had to be cut off. 

Linking to Skywatch Friday.

Notice how God is both kind and severe,

He is very hard on those who disobey,

but very good to you if you continue to love and trust him.

But if you don't, you too will be cut off.
