Here's the story behind this recipe: "I used to stay at my grandmother’s home when I was young. My grandmother knew I loved seafood a lot and she used to make me this dish every summer. This dish is very special - it reminds me of my fond memories with my grandma."
Dry the washed shrimps using kitchen/paper towels:
Cut off the legs and antennae:
Slightly cut the heads and tails of the shrimps:
Cut into the body. Take out the intestine:
Mince the whole head of garlic. Mix the garlic with sesame oil, white pepper, Chinese cooking wine, salt and sugar:
Fill the shrimps with the minced garlic mix:
Steam in medium heat for 5 minutes:
Drizzle some sesame oil over the cooked prawns and garnish with parsley flakes. It's ready, enjoy!
- Adjust the quantity of garlic according to your preference.
- The garlic may turn a bit green after steaming. This is safe to eat. This is the reaction of sulfur compounds in garlic with the other ingredients.
