Prawn with Ma Po sauce

Wanted to cook 'Ma Po tofu with Prawn' but forgot to buy tofu on that day, so have to rename the dish, the original recipe didn't require any addition of water maybe due to tofu so I add a little water at the last step, recipe from Jimmy Chua's Feast for Guest.

½ kg prawn
1 tbsp cornflour

200g minced pork
2 tbsp diced black mushrooms

1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp chopped chilli
1 tbsp sliced shallot

Dash of pepper
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp corn flour

1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce
½ tsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp shaoxing wine or cooking wine
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp of water


1. Trim and shell the prawn (leaving tail intact). Devein the prawns, wash and drain. Dry the prawns with kitchen towel, mix with A.
