When I get absolutely fresh prawns, this is one of the nicest ways to enjoy prawns. Don't bury it in any sauce and gravy. A quick preparation that locks in all the flavours and retains the juicy quality of the prawns.
Jumbo prawns - peeled and deveined (400 gms)
Marinate the prawns in a bit of lime juice, salt and a few drops of oyster sauce /soy sauce and keep for about 5 minutes.
Onion - 1 finely chopped
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
In a wok, heat about a tsp of oil, add the onion, saute well till brown, add the ginger garlic paste and the turmeric and chilly powders. when that is done, add the prawns and cook for about 5 to 10 minutes.
The prawns are done !!!! Garnish with chopped mint leaves and serve hot.
