Sauteed Prawn in Tomato sauce

MIL gave my lots of prawn so use it to try a different recipe, recipe from Fu Pei Mei's book...


500g Prawns
2 cups shredded onion
½ tbsp cornstarch paste

3 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp wine
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp sugar
½ tsp salt
½ cup water
¼ tsp black pepper
½ tsp sesame oil

1. Trim off the prawn’s head, sharp tail, and feet. Then cut each prawn down the back and de-vein it. Rinse the prawns, drain and dry it, then cut each prawn into two sections.

2. Heat 3 tbsp oil to fry the prawns, gently shake the pan so that each prawn will be cooked evenly. When they turn red, turn them over and fry the other side until completely done. Sprinkle in 1 tbsp wine. Then remove from wok.

3. Heat another 2 tbsp oil in the same pan. Add the ketchup and all the seasoning sauce, bring to a boil. Then put the fried prawns into the sauce. Cook for 1min. Thicken with cornstarch. Sprinkle 1 tbsp heated oil. Remove from wok and serve.
