How to Cook Prawns in Ginger Sauce

  1. Peel the prawns (if fresh) or defrost (if frozen). Chop the spring onions and root ginger, place in a saucepan and add the sherry, soy sauce and chicken stock. Season with salt and ground pepper, bring to the boil and then simmer for just two minutes. Stir in the prawns, then cover the pan and cook gently for 3 minutes. Serve immediately either as a starter with buttered brown bread or as a main course with rice or noodles.
  2. ** If you do not have the time or inclination to make the chicken stock, you can substitute a chicken stock cube dissolved in 3fl oz (85ml) of hot water.

If you are timing the preparation of a meal, you can prepare the sauce beforehand the, when ready, reheat it and add the pawns just for three minutes immediately prior to serving.

Reviews of Prawns in Ginger Sauce

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again May 13 2014
Ok, I am SOO making this again! We have some serious shrimp love in our home, with 4 out of 5 being shrimp fanatics. My mom's love language is also food, of course. But. She doesn't do cookbooks and recipes, like I do. Her method of measurements consists of dashes, pinches, and pours. So, no sharing recipes over the phone for us. But she cooks up a hungry storm every time we visit. Still salivating over the shrimp, in ginger sauce btw.
