Pan Fry Prawns with Oyster Sauce

this is really a simple yet delicious dish to cook and just four ingredients needed  that is oil , garlic, sugar and oyster sauce. Please note that the measurements written down there are only 'approximately' because I hardly measure when I cook chinese dish..just a pinch of this and that..

10 medium sized prawns, cleaned and trimmed
3 tablespoons oil for pan frying
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1/2 tsp sugar

1. Pan fry the prawns till cooked, notice that the shells will turn into orange red.
2. Leave the prawns aside at the wok or pan . You may want to scoop out some oil if it's too much. Saute garlics and add in the oyster sauce. Mix in the prawns and stir fry . Add in the sugar and stir for another minute. Dish up and serve.


  1. Oh, I saw some of these prawns at a restaurant before and they were humongous! Bigger than my index finger. Seeing your cooked shrimp reminded me of them. Looks just like theirs. :)

  2. Wow, prawns! I love this kind of soy sauce prawns alot. We used to make this during CNY or any other festive season.
