  • 1 lb Large prawns in the shell
  • 2 Tbsp. Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3 x Quarter-sized slices fresh ginger, bruised
  • 3 x Garlic cloves, bruised
  • 4 x Green onions with tops, cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 1 pch White pepper
  • 1 pch Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Dry sherry or possibly rice wine
  • 1 tsp Soy sauce
  • 1 bn Fresh watercress


  1. The trick to eating these is to pop them into your mouth and then separate the shells from the meat with your teeth and tongue. If the shells are crispy sufficient, eat 'em shells and all. The sauce cooks into the shells making them very flavorful.
  2. Leave shells and legs on the prawns. Rinse in cool water. Pat completely dry with paper toweling.
  3. To devein prawns, cut a 1/4-inch deep by 1/2-inch long incision down the outside curve of each shell. (Pointed kitchen shears are useful for this job.) Grasp the black vein and gently pull out and throw away.
  4. Preheat a wok or possibly skillet over medium-high heat. When warm, add in the oil, salt, ginger and garlic.
  5. Crush the ginger and garlic against the side of the pan with the back of the spatula to squeeze out their juices (about 30 seconds); remove ginger and garlic and throw away.
  6. When the oil is warm but not smoking, place a single layer of prawns flat in the pan. Fry without stirring till browned and crusty, about 1 minute.
  7. Turn the prawns and fry without stirring till browned on the second side, about 1 minute. Remove and keep hot while frying remaining prawns.
  8. When the last batch is done, increase heat to high. Return all the prawns to the pan, along with the green onions, pepper, sugar, wine and soy sauce.
  9. Quickly toss over high heat till liquid is reduced and a glaze coats the shrimp, about 30 seconds. Serve on a bed of watercress.
