Wasabi Prawns

Upon reading Anncoo's post on wasabi prawns a few months back, I had been wanting to cook this dish as I am a great wasabi fan and finally last night I was able to cook it after all and satisfied my curiousity on how the wasabi will blends with the shrimps. Two of my favourite ingredients, combined together , really explode in my mouth. Wonderful dish ! I gave it a tweak by blending the wasabi with a few tablespoons of coconut cream and the end result , a wonderful and  flavorful wasabi cream to coat the crispy fried shrimps .  This is a wonderful shrimp delights for those who love wasabi and shrimps :)
If your shrimps are would be great to make this dish as an appetizer or starter. I love this wasabi coated shrimps...a delish no doubt. The pungent wasabi added oomphs to the whole dish of crispy shrimps.  A great way serve this dish as an appetizer.  I will definitely try this dish again, it was delicious and I love it because the wasabi cream was truly a great coating for the shrimps. The original recipe didn't call for coconut cream but the adventurous me just can't help was a great combo after all !

I used medium size shrimps...sweet and tasty

great wasabi cream sauce for coating the shrimps

Have a great day !
