Prawns in Marmite, Honey & Chilli Padi

                    One only has to mention seafood, esp Prawns and more than likely, everyone will give a resounding word to describe their favorite Prawn dish and their are so many of them as Prawns are so versatile and just to eat them fried with black pepper & salt is also yummy. Ophelia

                                  Prawns in Marmite, Honey & Chilli Padi


              600 gm                 Prawns [Sea prawns best]
                  5 pips               Garlic
                  6                        Chilli Padi


                   1 Tabsp             Marmite
                   1 Tabsp             Sugar
                   1 Tabsp             Oyster Sauce
                1/2 Tabsp             Dark Soya Sauce
                   1 Tabsp             Light Soya Sauce
                  1/2                       bowl [rice bowl] Water


                   2 Tabsp             Honey is added last

  1. Wash, make a slit from head to base & remove the dirt, pat dry & trim the prawn head.  Do not remove the skin & head. 
  2. In a bowl add the Marmite, Sugar, Oyster Sauce, Dark Soya Sauce, Light Soya Sauce & water and stir. 
  3. Deep fry the prawns for a very short while, cannot overcook.  Remove onto plate.
  4. Remove surplus oil just leaving about 2 Tabsp of the oil.  Saute the garlic, chili padi then add in the sauce & bring it to a boil on medium fire.
  5. Once it comes to a boil Reduce fire to low medium and add in the pre cooked prawns; stir for 3 minutes.  Off the fire then add in the honey [honey burns easily] & a little of the oil that was used to fry the prawns earlier as the oil will give it lustre.
            Till my next post, xoxo, Ophelia
