Chilli Prawns Ingredients

  • 10 fresh red chillis such as serranos
  • 1/2 pound large prawns or substitute Gulf shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 10 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (Kikkoman preferred)


  1. Trim the heads of the prawns by removing the feelers but leave the heads on. Wash the prawns and pat dry.
  2. In a food processor, puree the chillis and garlic together to make a rough paste.
  3. Heat the oil in a wok, and when it smokes, add the chilli-garlic paste and stir fry until fragrant. Add the prawns and stir fry until the shells turn red, about 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce and stir fry until well-mixed, about 1 minute. Serve with hot steamed rice.
