Salt Baked Prawns

An extremely easy and delicious dish to whip up for your family!

  • 6 large prawns (or how many as u need)
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 tbsp of chopped garlic (more/less as you prefer)
  • Chinese parsley
  1. Clean prawn by washing them in salt water and cut off whiskers and legs, set aside to drain and dry

  2. Heat wok, once wok is heated, throw in the prawns and reduce fire to medium heat

  3. Turn lightly occasionally

  4. Once prawns are fragrant and browned, push them aside or remove and set aside

  5. Add oil and once oil is hot, add in the chopped garlic

  6. When garlic is slightly golden brown, add the prawns or move the prawns so that it 'fries' in the oil and garlic

  7. Turn gently so that the prawns will coat the garlic. Sprinkle the salt and turn. Cover the wok/pan for 1 min. Stir lightly.

  8. Once fragrant, remove and sprinkle freshly cut parsley.

  9. Serve immediately. ENJOY


  • Always fry prawns esp those with shells and head in a dry, hot pan. If you add oil, it will take a much longer time to dry the prawns and hence the prawns will not be as fragrant.

  • This is because prawns emit alot of fluid which will bring down the temperature of the wok/pan and compromising the cooking process. This also helps to seal in the juices
