Grilled River Prawns With Spicy And Sweet Soy Sauce

The weather was sunny today and so I decided to do some quick outdoor grilling. It had to be quick because it was still pretty chilly out there. In any case, all I needed was 15 minutes to grill these succulent river prawns.

I served the prawns with a spicy and sweet soy sauce. All I had to do was season the fresh prawns lightly with salt, pepper, and olive oil. As for the sauce, I just used some sweet soy sauce from Indonesia. You can find most of these simple items at your Asian grocers.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
