Prawns in Tomato Sauce

Wednesday, November 4, 2009





Recently i had developed a liking for prawns and had been cooking prawns quite frequently. Few dishes down, i discovered that prawns goes very well with tomato sauce. The slightly tart taste and sweetness from tomato enhanced the natural flavour of the prawns, making them a delightful dish to eat.

It is so scrumptious that i wonder why i resist cooking them before. The only reason i can think of is i find the effort of deshelling and deveining them a hassle. OMG! I never realised i’m such a lazy gal, shouldn’t the reward of having a delicious meal demand some work?

Hahaha … Truth to tell, after a few times of handling the raw prawns, me thinks that it’s actually not a tedious job. It just goes to say that ‘pratice makes perfect’. As long as one is willing, nothing is too difficult, heh?
