Panfried Prawns In Soya Sauce (For My Cooking Hut)

Hi everyone! I'm very happy to be doing my third guest post, this time for My Cooking Hut. :) Lee Mei - a fellow Teochew - is the brains and talent behind this beautiful blog. I got to know her almost 2 years ago - her blog was already hugely popular then - and I instantly fell in love with her food and photography. Who wouldn't, really?

Since then, My Cooking Hut has become one of my must-reads, and Lee Mei, one of my favourite bloggers.

Seeing that Lee Mei and I both love prawns, I decided to cook a very homely but delicious dish of Panfried Prawns in Soy Sauce for this guest post. Chinese New Year is less than 2 weeks away, and since prawns are a must-have* at many dinner tables, I wanted to share an easy recipe that anyone can follow.
* Prawns in cantonese are called "ha", which sounds like laughter (and therefore associated with happiness). Chinese serve prawns for that auspicious reason, in the hope of heralding in a joyous new year.

To see how this dish is prepared, please visit the wonderful My Cooking Hut. Thank you, Lee Mei, for this wonderful and generous invitation!
