Tomato Garlic Prawns

I love shrimp because it is so easy to cook so we always have shrimp. But even though we always have shrimp my menu is limited to few recipes; I usually cook Buttered Garlic Shrimp or Salted-Egg Shrimp

Last week, we received some prawns and I remembered the Tomato Garlic Prawns Sauce PHP42 that I bought few months ago. I just added this because I need to meet a certain amount to get discount and free shipping. Hehehe!


Ingredients 
250g prawns (trimmed and dried) 
1 pack of Lee Kum Kee Sauce for Tomato Garlic Prawns 

Procedure 
Pan-fry prawns in 2 tbsp oil until golden yellow and done. 
Turn low heat and add the sauce. 
Stir well quickly until heated through. 

Or stir-fry 250g shelled prawns in 1 tbsp oil until done. 
Add sauce and stir well quickly. 

I checked the procedures and kulang pala yung sauce ko because my prawns are almost a kilo so I added few ingredients like garlic, tomatoes, and water para dumami. Hehehe! 

2 tbsp olive oil 
2 tomatoes 
4 cloves of minced garlic 
Prawns (shelled and deveined) 
2 tbsp water 
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: Fresh or dried Parsley  

1. In a pan, put the oil and saute the garlic. 
2. Add tomatoes and cook for 8 minutes until softens. 
3. Add prawns and cook for 4-5 minutes.
4. Season with salt and pepper. 
5. Add the Lee Kum Kee Sauce for Tomato Garlic Prawns 
6. Add water, dried parsley, and season with salt and pepper. 
7. Stir well for 2 minutes. 
8. Serve 


The taste is good and my husband said, lasang Chinese cuisine. Natawa na lang ako because Lee Kum Kee nga yung brand. hehehe! But I don’t think I will buy this again kasi mas mura kung mag DIY na lang ako and we still prefer buttered garlic or salted egg recipes. But if you like this kind of recipe, you can buy Lee Kum Kee Tomato Garlic Prawn Sauce online too.
