Soy Sauce Prawns

As you guys know, this Chinese New Year I am not in my home country. So I decided to join my Malaysian friends for reunion dinner. We decided on hotpot. It’s more cozy and easy to prepare. And I decided to prepare soy sauce prawn. I have to admit that I am not a great cook when it comes to Asian food. I do have to practice more. As my dad always said practice makes perfect. But I am proud with my soy sauce prawn. My friends enjoyed it. First time cooking it and it tastes pretty good. So I am really happy about it! It will be tastier if I fry the prawn first before adding it into the other ingredients. I choose not to, because I am not fancy with frying food in my small humble room. And it’s healthier, I think. I got the recipe from the NasiLemakLover blogger.
