Beer Steamed Prawns

With so few ingredients, the goodness of the prawns really shines through so buy the freshest prawns that your money can buy for this dish! For me, fresh prawns are found at the wet market. The dish is quick cooking too, as I steamed them for only about 4 minutes and they are ready to serve. For best results, prawns are steamed with shells on so the only “troublesome” aspect of this recipe will be to de-vein the prawns with their shells on. The results will be well worth your effort :)

Note: What we call ‘prawn’ over here in South East Asia is known as ‘shrimp’ in the US.
