One fine day, I just missed this Indo-Chinese seafood dish we always eat at home.
I remember during my primary school years, I picked up my best friend to school, was invited inside to have a "quickie" breakfast, and was shocked to be served the udang goreng mentega dish with steamed rice...for BREAKFAST!!!
But it was truly yummy and I licked my plate totally clean.
A stingy bitch that I am, I refrain from buying seafood, especially prawns as they are expensive and won't make me full. (Yes I am also a big eater). But OK I allowed myself to splurge this once.
Aromatics: spring onion, shallot, red chilli (chopped), garlic, ginger (crushed)
saute aromatics in olive oil, add prawns, season with soy sauce, lotsa Indonesian sweet soy sauce (kecap manis), a bit of oyster sauce, a bit of ketchup....and...
serve with hot steamed rice, eat with your hand for a true Indonesian experience.
