Chef Michelle :- Sweet Chilly Prawns and Squid

I think it is a statement of fact or since the trend nowadays is to swear by the God's book, i can also swear by that, is the fact that i can't cook.

So when i see people about eating good food AND churning out good food, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Since of all people i can't cook, i have managed to roped in The Girlfriend's cousin, all the way studying in Melbourne to help me out on this one.

Honoring her skills by having to cook for herself and two very picky males; the Boyfriend and the Brother, i have convinced her to let me in on her recipes for my blog.

So without further ado, my guest recipe blogger! Michelle Ng!


Hi and g'day to all. Today i would like to introduce to all of you, a simple seafood dish that will get you all fired up, My Sweet Chilly Prawns and Squid.

The ingredients are pretty simple. Here's what you need:
  • Prawns (peeled & deveined) and/or squid
  • Shallots (quartered & sliced)
  • Chillies (sliced)
  • Light soya sauce
  • Sugar
  • Tomato sauce
  • Thai sweet chilly sauce
Well, I would recommend using 250-300g of prawns and/or squids, 2-3 shallots, and probably 1 or 2 chilly according to individual preference.

As easy as ABC.

Step 1 - Heat some oil in a pan/wok until hot, then sauté the shallots and chillies for one or two minutes.
Step 2 - Season it with a tablespoon of light soya sauce.
Step 3 - Stir in the prawns and/or squids.
Step 4 - Sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over the prawns/squid.
Step 5 - Add 2 tablespoon of tomato sauce and Thai sweet chilly sauce respectively.
Step 6 - Sauté until the prawns/squid are cooked. (You may want to adjust seasoning to suit your taste.)

Yeap, it's that simple. You can serve hot with rice as main dish or can be taken as a side dish.

Thats all folks! Let me know if the recipe works out fine and till the next time!


I knew i had a way haha..
