2 teaspoons vegetable oil

24 cleaned, peeled and deveined prawns 

2 teaspoons minced garlic 

1 cup chicken broth 

2 tablespoons white sugar 

A dash of salt

A dash of white pepper

2 tablespoons mayonnaise 

8 fresh asparagus, cut into 1-inch sections 

1/2 cup sundried tomatoes

8 cups cooked steamed rice 

2/3 cup sliced toasted almonds


  1. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the vegetable oil. Lay the prawns in the pan slowly without splashing them in the oil. Add the garlic, then saute until the aroma of the garlic permeates and the prawns turn pink. Turn the heat to medium and slowly add the chicken broth, sugar, salt, white pepper and mayonnaise. Mix and saute all the ingredients until the sugar is clearly melted and the sauce is evenly combined and starts to boil. Add the asparagus and sundried tomatoes at this time and saute for another 30 seconds (making sure the sundried tomato is evenly cooked). Then pour over a bed of cooked steamed rice. Sprinkle the toasted almonds on top, and then serve.

Cook’s Note

Taste the sauce before adding the asparagus and sundried tomatoes to ensure the right amount of salt and white pepper to personal preference.
