Sauteed Tiger Prawns

I love seafood and when it comes to Tiger Prawns I like using as few ingredients as possible so that the sweet taste of the prawns do not get overpowered. I sautéed those juicy prawns in ginger, garlic, dried red chillies , salt and pepper . They turned out to be absolutely phenomenal.

1 box of Tiger Prawns (if using frozen or 12 fresh )
1 head of garlic
1 small piece of ginger (to make around 1 tbs of finely chopped)
1 tsp of dried red chilli flakes
Pinch of sugar
1/4 cup of water
2 tbs oil (preferably peanut oil otherwise vegetable oil)
salt and pepper to taste

Clean prawns and pat dry
Add salt and pepper
Heat oil in a wok
Add finely chopped garlic and ginger
Fry for a bit and add Prawns and keep stirring
When Prawns start to change color to red, add water and allow to cook for a 2 mins
Now add sugar and fry till all liquid is absorbed
Add the chilli flakes and mix well

Serve with rice or can be eaten with hands as is !
