Prawn Cocktail

Prawn Cocktail or Prawn Salad. Whichever and however you like to address this prawn dish (Tamarind Prawn Curry, Sambal Udang Petai, Prawn Noodle Soup & Devilled Prawns). Of course, Prawn Cocktail sounds high tech and tempting, but I think prawn salad is equally splendor acceptable as well. What's with Prawn Cocktail for a change? Just like that. No particular valid reason. Some fresh prawns still seated in my fridge and I thought I might as well get them working. What's with working or waking those prawns up? Pretty much nothing over the top. Instead of a heavy night meal, I decided I like something light for nibbling. Of course, Prawn Cocktail unquestionably is one of it you can or must consider when you are entertaining. When friends walk in and before whatever else you will be serving or maybe simultaneously alongside the rest of the dishes. To make? Blanch the prawns (Chinese Prawn Fritters, Prawn Mango Curry & Nasi Lemak Sambal Udang). Prawns by the way can be cooked within a jiffy and blanching them alongside ginger paste is for freshness. Thereafter, prawns tossed and mixed with those ingredients listed below, and yogurt (Cucumber Yogurt Salad)? Well, always available at home and instead of sour cream which by far I will consider as a rather above my budget ingredient. Prawn Cocktail (Sichuan Chilli Prawns) atop some salad leaves. Tadaa!
