Day 8: Lovin' Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit Steamed Prawns

The air is filled with family love today cos we are sharing our Zespri® Kiwifruit with our precious pet rabbit, Robby. Our little pet here has such attitude that he tends to pick what he likes to eat rather than most rabbits who eat every "rubbish" (a term borrowed from other rabbit owners) given :p he's such a spoilt rabbit!

Day 8 Robby

We have a little video here showing how he enjoy munching on a piece of Zespri® Green Kiwifruit. This little fler here doesn't like the Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit though, most probably because it's a bit too soft since the stash I have are mostly over ripen. Robby prefers to munch on crunchy fruits/veggies.

On this day of Zespri® 14-Day Daily Scoop of Amazing Challenge, I've thought quite hard what recipe to share out even after consulting for more recipes. After testing out this steamed prawns dish, it's a pass ;-) so glad that every recipes tried went so well and the flavour that the kiwifruits oozes out is simply amazing. Actually, I've wanted to make a steamed fish ala Thai style but since it's the Raya season, I can't find the right fish at the wet market. I didn't want to fuss around so I just used a tub of prawns from my freezer which works just as well.

Before steaming

Lovin' Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit Steamed Prawns
(Serves 4)

400 g medium sized prawns, shell intact but use a toothpick to remove the sand track in between the shell segments
1 large lemongrass, sliced thinly
1 Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit, sliced into rounds
2 kaffir lime leaves
1 clove garlic, sliced into thin strips
1 cm young ginger, sliced into thin strips
1 cm galangal, sliced thinly
1 corriander root
1 Tbsp corriander leaves
1 stalk spring onion, sliced into 4 cm lengths
½ red chillies, sliced into strips

½ Tbsp fish sauce, or to taste (bear in mind, my tastebud is on the lighter side)
½ tsp sugar
A dash of ground white pepper

Garnishing: a couple of lime wedges, corriander leaves and spring onions

Mix all ingredients together. Place a piece of aluminum foil on a heatproof plate. Toss all ingredients onto the foil. Fold and seal up into a package. Steam for about 20 minutes (my timing was based on an electric steamer).

When cooked, open the package carefully and sprinkle corriander leaves and spring onion all over. Garnish with lime wedges on top. Squeeze in the lime before serving. Serve hot!
