Marmite Prawns

Let's go for seafood today...

I made Marmite Prawns without following any recipe, just pakai hentam (simply guess) only. Let me recall what I put inside the sauce. I have 6 large prawns and some spring onions chopped to about 2 inches in length. For the sauce, 1 heap teaspoon Marmite, a few dashes of Worcestershire Sauce, 1 teaspoon sugar or to taste, and about 4-5 tablespoons water - mix them all together (taste it now and adjust either by adding sugar or more Marmite according to your liking).

First, I dried the prawns with paper towel and lightly sprinkle some salt and pepper; plus some cornflour to dry them further. I fried the prawns in some oil until they're cooked (when they turned red/pink and curled up). Stirred in the spring onions. Next, poured in the sauce and stirred to coat the prawns evenly. Lastly, thickened the sauce with some cornflour and water solution. You may cook yours till it's dry but I preferred mine with some sauce so that I can lap them up with my rice!
