With Chinese New Year around the corner, cook this auspicious and delicious stir-fried Kam Heong Prawns (金香蝦碌) to celebrate the festive season. Kam Heong (金香) is Cantonese dialect and literally translate as “golden fragrance”.
The spice blend includes dried shrimps, curry powder, shallots and garlic. This sauce is popularly used to stir fry clams, crabs and in this case, prawns. The word for prawn sounds like “ha” in Cantonese and some other Chinese dialects, symbolizing laughter (笑 “哈哈”) and happiness in the new year.
