Sweet & Sour Prawns

EVENTS

Ingredients:

25 large prawns (heads & shells on) Salt to marinate the prawns lightly Enough oil for shallow-frying the prawns 5 cloves garlic, minced 4 slices of ginger, sliced thinly 3-4 red chilli peppers, sliced thinly For the sauce: 1/2 bowl of ketchup 2-4 tbs of sugar (or to taste) 1 tbs soy sauce (or to taste) 1/2 tbs white vinegar (or to taste)

Now, prepare the sauce with the ingredients listed above. For this sauce, I would highly recommend you to start with a little of the seasonings and add on after tasting each time. Next, saute the garlic, ginger and red peppers till fragrant - use medium to low heat. Now, pour in the previously prepared sauce and bring to a boil. Quickly add in the previously fried prawns and stir around well to coat evenly. Serve hot.

Method: First, shallow fry the prawns after marinating lightly with salt until prawns are lightly cooked (slightly undercooked). Fresh fish available at Fresh Fish Market, Wharf Street

This is the easiest one-loaf yeast bread you will ever bake. Prep Time: 3 hours Cook Time: 45 minutes Total Time: 3 hours, 45 minutes Ingredients: 3/4 cup warm water 1 package active dry yeast 1 tsp salt 1-1/2 tbsp sugar 1 tbsp vegetable oil 1/2 cup milk 3 cups flour, approximately Preparation: In large bowl, add the warm water. Slowly stir in dry yeast. Continue to stir until yeast is dissolved. Add salt, sugar, oil, and milk to bowl. Stir. Mix in the first 2 cups of flour.

Turn dough out onto floured board and knead, adding small spoonfuls of flour as needed, until the dough is soft and smooth, not sticky to the touch. Put dough in buttered bowl, turn dough over so that the top of dough is greased. Cover and let rise in warm spot for 1 hour. Punch down dough. Turn out onto floured board and knead. Preheat oven at 190ยบC. Form dough into loaf and set in buttered bread pan. Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes. Score dough by cutting three slashes across the top with a sharp knife. Put in oven and bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown. Turn out bread and let cool on a rack or clean dishtowel.
