Galangal- and lemon-infused steamed prawns

Loading video...

Serves 2


7-8 prawns (medium-sized)

10g galangal

2-3 kaffir lime leaves

1 tsp lemongrass,

1 tsp sesame oil

Salt and pepper to taste

8-10 rice sheets


Mince the prawns. Mix with finely chopped galangal, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass and sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper.

To make the dim sums, place 1 tsp of the mixture in the middle of one rice sheet and fold the sheet in half. Pinch the edges together to seal them (and make a patterned rib). Leave one end slightly open. Stick a prawn tail half-way through the opening.

Put in a dim sum basket (or a steamer) and steam for 4 minutes. Serve hot with a spicy sauce of your choice, such as sweet pepper sauce or hoysin sauce.
