Drunken Prawn Soup

Friday night, dh and I visited Giant at Tampines and happened to chance upon these fresh prawns. Since it had been quite a while we had eaten prawns, dh mentioned that it would be nice to have them for supper. So here was what I did .....

Boiled about 2 cups of water mixed with 1 cup of Chinese cooking wine. Add 4 pieces of ginger and a handful of kei chee. Process 400 gm of fresh prawns and season it with a tsp of sugar and salt and a little pepper for about half an hour. Once the wine mixture boiled, I threw in the prawns and waited until they all turned orange and ready. This should take about 5-10 minutes.

We had a yummylicious supper of prawns and soup that night :-)
