Salted egg fry prawns

I remembered the 1 kg of big prawns that I bought from Pantai Remis that have been deep free zed with some sugar water(to keep fresh).  Today to steam or what??  Most of the time I like to steam as long as the prawns are still fresh.  Anyway I like to try other way of cooking .  I will try to stir fry the prawns with salted egg yolks. 

the ingredients
500g prawns
2 salted eggs
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tbsp corn flour
30 g butter
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tsp chopped red chili

1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp light soy sauce
3 tbsp chicken stock/water

Trim the legs and the sharp parts and clean the intestine of the prawns, drained. Season with the pepper.  Meanwhile boil the salted eggs.  Lightly smash the egg yolks when the eggs were cooked.

Heat enough oil  in a wok. Sprinkle corn flour over the prawns and deep fry for about 30 seconds.  Remove from the wok and drain.

Heat butter and oil in a wok. Add in the chopped garlic and chopped chili and fry until fragrant. Blend in the smashed salted egg yolks and prawns.  Add in the seasoning and toss briefly until prawns are cooked through.  Remove and garnish with chopped spring onion.  Serve hot.

Mmmm, look good, and taste good too. I like the salted egg yolks that stick to the shell of the prawns.  Its really finger licking good .
