aadaaa!! Here's my Baked Prawns in Special Sauce. This is a remake of a dish we had in Grand Imperial, USJ 19 Subang during our annual CNY dinner with our crazy bunch of friends. It was so yummylicious that my hubby requested a remake of this dish from me.
At the restaurant, I had a few good bites of the prawn and were able to identified the ingredients used. The flavors were quite obvious, so it was easy to identify them. To ensure that I remember the taste clearly, I had a few more.
Back home at my in law's, when we were discussing about the menu for our Chap Goh Meh Dinner, my dad (in law) mentioned that there are king prawns in the fridge. What a coincident! My hubby quickly suggested to leave the prawn dish to me.
It was quite stressful as I did not want to spoil the beautiful humongous king prawns and have 16++ peoples disappointed (if I failed to replicate the dish) but my hubby have absolutely trust in me. And so with his trust, I proceeded to cook with confidence.
I was so relieved that it was a success at first try! My hubby said that it is EXACTLY like how it was at the restaurant. He gave me a rating 10 out of 10! However my elder BIL commented that it was slightly salty. So, on my second try, I've reduced the salt a little.
The below recipe is based on my second try. I've cooked this dish again at home just so that I could test the scaled down recipe (and also because my hubby requested for it again).
