HomeCookin’ - Singapore Style Chili Prawns w/ hot oil seared noodles.
I had been craving a Singaporean style chili dish and so I thought I would attempt to make it myself. First time for everything right?
Usually this dish would be made with crab but for me, it was much easier to buy shrimp and add it instead.
About 1.5 pounds peeled medium shrimp
4 cloves finely chopped garlic
2 tbsp grated ginger
2 red chillies, chopped
In a bowl mix, 8 tbsp tomato sauce, 4 tbsp sweet chili sauce, 2 tbsp hot sauce, 2 teaspoons of corn starch, juice of one large lime, 1 tbsp sugar, salt and pepper.
In another bowl, whisk 2 eggs.
In a wok, saute the garlic, ginger and chili until fragrant. Add the shrimp/prawns and toss for a min or so until pink.
Add the sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Stir and turn heat to medium. Stir until thick around 2-3 mins.
Turn heat up and quickly toss through the egg until they cook and mix into the sauce.
Serve immediately with your choice of noodles or rice.
* we served mai fun, tossed in hot sesame oil, garlic, chives and scallions.
SO SO GOOD. Loved the sweet heat!
