Fried Prawns in Garlic
3 to 4 coriander roots
2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon peppercorns
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons white soya sauce
2 tablespoons fish sauce
coriander leaves, for garnishing.
Wash the prawns and then drain. Cut the center of each prawn from head to tail. Using a mortar, pound the coriander roots, chopped garlic and peppercorns together. Mix thoroughly. Reserve some garlic for garnishing. Marinate the prawns with the mixture, white soya sauce and fish sauce for 30 minutes. Put vegetable oil into a frying pan. Using medium heat, fry the prawns until they turn red. Remove the fried prawns from the pan. For garnishing, sprinkle with some coriander leaves and crispy garlic. Crispy garlic can be made by frying the chopped garlic in vegetable oil using low heat. Fry until golden. Serves 2.
