Singapore Chilli Prawns
Every time I watch a show that shows Singapore chilli crab, I salivate and dream I could be bothered cooking up crab at home. I found a cheaper, easier… most likely less authentic, but still super delicious and easy to make alternative.
I picked up a bag of frozen de-shelled prawns at Colonial Fruit Market the other day; I always keep ginger in the freezer in little pieces, and tinned tomatoes are a staple in the pantry. So really this is a dish I could whip up at a moment’s notice, and have an amazing meal.I can’t stress how easy this was to make, and the cleaning up was basically nothing… which is always an added bonus.
I cracked in a couple of eggs at the end to make the dish a little more authentic, and for those who enjoy a bit of coriander, may I suggest, a generous scattering of it to top it off.
