Home Cuisine Chinese Salted Egg Yolk Shrimp

Salted Egg Yolk Shrimp

I love salted egg, I think I may have mentioned it in one of my early posts that I like having it for my afternoon snack paired with ice-cold bottle of coke back in my college years- those carefree days of not having to worry about cholesterol; that time when I do not seem to gain any weight–I  can eat whatever, whenever and not gain any lbs at all.

I have stick arms back then, now my arms are like cake rolls! LOL. Just kidding. They’re definitely bigger though because my body structure has changed after more than 2 decades…I like to think that it’s just a natural part of my evolution 😀

Okay, here’s one recipe that uses yummy, creamy, sinful salted egg yolk..about a month ago I went crazy with salted eggs, I bought a lot and ate it for snacks (my daughter loves it too) used it on this shrimp recipe, on carbonara and on pancakes!  I have photos of them, I’ll find time to share them here, too.

For this recipe, I like to use shrimp that’s already shelled so all I need to do is to de-vein  them, it makes cooking this dish quick and easy.

On the other hand, I don’t mind shelling prawns because they’re big hence I only have to do a few pieces..just saying.:D

Happy Cooking!  🙂
