Garlic Prawns (Koong Tod Kra-tium prik Thai)

Garlic Prawns or Thai call "Koong Tod Kra-tium prik Thai"  Long time never cook for this menu. Children really like them.  I like to serve with hot steamed rice.  Not spicy menu but taste of pepper and garlic.  And it tasty one.  This time I using back pepper make taste change a little from ground pepper.

  • 400 grams of Cleaned Prawns
  • 1 tsp minced coriander root
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 ½  tsp fish sauce
  • ½  tsp back pepper
  • 2 tbsp oil for frying
  • Mix together, garlic, fish sauce, pepper, coriander root and cleaned prawn, then leave to marinate for 5 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a wok over medium heat. 
  • Add prawns and their marinade, then stir-fry for 2-4 minutes or until the color turns to pink.
  • Transfer to a serving dish. 
  • Garnish with sliced tomatoes and cucumber, then serve immediately with hot steamed rice.
Tip : to get the best taste of prawns, it must not be over cooked.
