Savoury Sauce Fried Prawns For Dinner & Stages Of My Yellow Hibiscus

I have 2 packets of sea white shell prawns in my freezer. I took out 1 packet to cook for yesterday's dinner.
Once the prawns were thawed, I seasoned it with some sugar and kept in the fridge before cooking. First, I shallow fried the prawns. With some oil in the wok (frying pan), I fried chopped garlic, ginger strips and 1 big onion cut into wedges until fragrant. Then I add in some oyster and soy sauce and a little water. Once it started to boil, add in the prawns, spring onions and some shaoxing cooking wine, stirred and dish out. The prawns with a little gravy goes well with steamed rice.
I cook the remaining last quarter pumpkin with dried prawns and garlic. I had 2 snake long beans after clearing the old plants, so I just added them to the pumpkin dish.
Sauteed Green Amaranth (yeen choy) with garlic.
I overcooked this dish because in the midst of cooking this dish, the local council people started the mosquitoes spray outside my house. I have to quickly cover the wok (frying pan) and waited till the smell of the spray went off.
Home cooked dinner for 2 people.
Steamed rice for hubby and I ate the pumpkin in place of rice because hubby doesn't like pumpkin.

tender and sympathetic to those who reverence him.

For he knows we are but dust and that our days are few and brief,

like grass, like flowers, blown by the wind and gone forever.

  4. Very nice 3 dishes. I like to eat soft soft yin choy like your dish. Pumpkin is so tasty too. Prawns I like but lazy to peel so is placed last in the order of preference. Do you know the difference between white shell prawns with grey shell prawns? I don't and I wonder what is the difference. Which one tastes nicer.

    1. I am not very sure about the prawns but someone once told me that the grey shell prawns are farmed prawns. Don't know how far it is true. I usually buy the white shell prawns but will buy the grey ones if I can't find white ones.

  5. Thank you for the flowers photos. Flowers really brightens up our days. How did you take photos of the various stages of the yellow hibiscus? Did you place the camera there on Autotimer or use a stroboscope?

  11. Mmm yummy looking prawns.

    It's too bad hibiscus flowers only last a day. The plant would be so beautiful if only the flowers last, oh, a week. :)
