In other parts of the world large sea prawns are called shrimps but strange enough I grew up thinking shrimps are the tiny baby prawns used to make “hae bee” (small tiny dried prawns).
Anyway, whatever name you wish to call them, prawns or shrimps doesn’t make a difference to their taste. As long as they taste good,Â you can call them anything you wish.
Finally, I am starting to get my cooking bug back after thinking about nothing much except fish and more fish for the whole of last month. In fact, I am beginning to actually like fish. I was very inspired to cook this dish after watching Bobby Chinn of “Eating Asia”Â in Hong Kong cooking an almost similar dish except his prawnsÂ were steamed over some eggy rice. It brought back some lovely memories of my love affair with prawns (shrimps) during my earlier days.
