Cost per serving $2.37 view details
  • 600gm medim-sized fresh prawns (remove legs, feelers and de-vein, leaving head and shell intact)
  • a big bunch of fresh Thai basil leaves
  • 8 large garlic cloves, chopped finely
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • generous sprinkling of white pepper powder
  • cooking oil for frying


  1. Marinate prawns with 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp sugar and a generous sprinkling of white pepper powder. Keep aside, covered for 15 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat about 1/2 cup oil and fry prawns in one single layer, 2 minutes per side until cooked. Remove and drain. You may need to do this in a few batches.
  3. Remove oil from wok, retain about 2 tablespoons of oil in wok. Saute the chopped garlic until light brown, crispy and fragrant. Add in all the pre-fried prawns and a pinch of salt to taste. (You may add in more white pepper powder and sugar to taste if desired). Stir fry until prawns are coated with the fragrant chopped garlic about 1 minute. Add in the basil leaves, stir to combine for a minute more or until leaves are wilted and fragrant.
  4. Dish out to a serving plate. Enjoy!
