Thai Chili Prawns Recipe

Thai Chili Prawns Recipe

I’m a sucker for seafood. Growing up in an island, we’d often enjoy feasts of fish, crabs, lobsters, and of course: prawns! I can never get enough of shrimps or prawns! The best type of cooking it? Chili-style, baby! And then best paired thereafter with heaps and heaps of rice… YUM! Like come on, the spicy-sweet combo in this dish is simply phenomenal!

After I had a cooking class with The Cookery Place, I realized that this is actually a breeze to prepare! I’m a newbie cook but this is something that I could totally whip up; you too!

Serves: 4

200 g Prawns, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup Shrimp stock
1/4 cup Tomato ketchup
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Rice vinegar
2 tbsp Chili paste
1 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Oil, vegetable
1 tsp Garlic, minced
1 tsp Shallot, minced
2 pcs Bird’s eye chili, sliced
1 pc Egg, beaten


  1. In a bowl, combine the stock, ketchup, soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili paste, and sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a hot wok or pan, add the oil and stir fry the prawns until cooked. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Using same wok or pan, add oil, garlic, ginger, shallots, and bird’s eye chili. Stir fry until fragrant.
  4. Add the sauce from #1 and stir a few seconds before adding the egg in a circular motion to thicken the sauce.
  5. Add the cooked prawns and mix well with the sauce.
  6. Remove from heat and serve!
