Drunken Prawns

Steamed Drunken prawns (醉虾) is a dish which is unbelievably cheap and easy to prepare at home, but if you were to order it at the restaurant, be prepared to pay many, many times more than it would cost you to prepare it at home. Seafood is always so expensive when it is ordered outside.

Drunken Prawns

This recipe uses live prawns, but don’t flame me, this is usually how the dish is prepared in Chinese restaurants. That’s why they have tanks of live seafood (fish, lobster, prawns). You can always substitute with non-live prawns if you are not comfortable with using live prawns. I bought live prawns from Farmart, but you can easily find them at selected Shing Sheong or NTUC supermarkets :)

    Is marinating wine (step no. 4) same as hua diao jiu?

    They looks simply delicious!

    And, aside from the wolfberries (which I don’t have), I will have no trouble making this dish. I won’t even have to wait for the prawns to stop jumping about, as the ones we get here on D.O.A.

    Thanks dear NC for this recipe!

      lol about the DOA prawns ;) Don’t worry, wolfberries are just a fancy touch which can be omitted. Hope you like the recipe dear :)

    I love prawns, but not sure where to buy live prawns. I think I will just go ahead with normal dead but fresh prawns :)
