Steamed Drunken prawns (醉虾) is a dish which is unbelievably cheap and easy to prepare at home, but if you were to order it at the restaurant, be prepared to pay many, many times more than it would cost you to prepare it at home. Seafood is always so expensive when it is ordered outside.
This recipe uses live prawns, but don’t flame me, this is usually how the dish is prepared in Chinese restaurants. That’s why they have tanks of live seafood (fish, lobster, prawns). You can always substitute with non-live prawns if you are not comfortable with using live prawns. I bought live prawns from Farmart, but you can easily find them at selected Shing Sheong or NTUC supermarkets :)
