    some sesame oil,
    15g spring onion sections,
    15g sliced lemongrass,
    some bonito flakes


  • some salt,
    some sugar,
    some cornstarch



    • Steep prawns briefly in Marinade.
    • Heat up some oil. Scald prawns briefly in oil. Remove and drain.
    • Heat up some oil and sesame oil. Sauté spring onion and lemongrass. Add Special Soy Sauce, stir until fragrant.
    • Add prawns and toss quickly to fully soak up the sauce. Garnish with bonito flakes and serve.

    Chef’s Note: Thai yellow sugar adds a tinge of refreshing sweetness to the Special Soy Sauce. Besides prawns, you can also match the sauce with squid, sliced fish and chicken for variety.
