Pan Fried Sweet Drunken Prawn 干煎酒香明虾

Photo updated: 31 July 2017

Pan Fried Sweet Drunken Prawn 干煎酒香明虾 - A quick and easy prawn recipe ready in 10 minutes or less. Absolutely delicious to pair with or without rice.

Today is 8th day of Chinese New Year 正月初八 . There's no way I can buy fresh prawns. These prawns were bought before Chinese New Year. I cleaned it, dried and kept in the freezer. Well, I'm very picky when come to seafood especially prawns. Prawns that were kept frozen, I need to cook it with strong flavor to get rid of the fishy smells. 

This method is perfect! Made up my new recipe again. Simple yet delicious. My definition of 'simple' this time, refer to NO DEEP FRYING ;)

My boy gives me 2 thumbs up when I asked him to rate this dish, the prawns were drunken but you won't get drunk by eating this... :)


6 Large Prawns (deveined, cleaned & dried)


6-8 Small Onion (or more, peeled and sliced thinly)

1 1/2 tbsp Soy Sauce

1 tbsp Shao Xing Wine

1/4 tsp Sesame Oil

1 tbsp Sugar

Some oil for cooking

Chopped spring onion and red chili for garnishing
