Recipe: Spicy Garlic Prawns with Cashew Nuts

Prawn is a must-have ingredient during Chinese New Year as it symbolises laughter and happiness. During Chinese New Year, we will usually get large prawns such as these.

Spicy Garlic Prawns

This is a delicious Spicy Garlic Prawn recipe which you can try making at home.Simply toss your prawns in some garlic powder, chilli flakes and oil. Cook until crispy and then toss in garlic-oil sauce along with some salted butter. I also added some toasted cashew nuts as their shapes look like gold ingots and spring onion which is a symbol for spring.

Since you will be shallow frying your prawns in oil, it is much better to use garlic powder than raw garlic in this recipe as it will not burn when you fry them. Furthermore, the lovely garlic flavours are infused into the shells and sauce. Super easy yet finger licking good - try it!
