"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Steamed Garlic and Huadiao Wine Prawns

Steamed Garlic and Huadiao Wine Prawns

Came up with my own recipe while trying to imitate the taste of drunken prawns.


1. Buy only fresh medium-sized grey prawns.
2. Diced 4 pieces of garlic finely.
3. Cut 4 chilli padi.
4. Place the garlic and chilli at the bottom of the plate. Then place the prawns on top of them.
5. Pour Huadiao wine (about 3 tablespoons) over the prawns such that the prawns are soaked in the wine. You can put more Huadiao wine according to your tastebuds.
6. Leave it on the table for about 20 minutes for the prawns to absorb some Huadiao wine.
7. Steam for 7 minutes.
8. Garnish and serve hot!
