This is one shrimp dish that the family love very much. It is so fragrant and the wonderful taste of salted egg yolks on the shells that makes me want to crunch the shells and swallow together with the meat. Shameful to note here that I do lick every ounce of deliciousness out of the shells before I throw them out :p That is the beauty of eating shrimps with the shells on :) I have cooked this dish many times but each time I try to better it. There is still room for improvement as to how to make the salted egg more fluffy and coated evenly on the shells like those served in restaurants. I have yet to master the art ....well practice makes perfect ....:p Okay okay if I can cook as good as them , then all the restaurants in Ipoh will have to close shop :p. Do read on and drool on the pictures....virtual feeding is healthier though :))))
Somehow my salted egg yolks doesn't fluff out nicely...it should be more fine sandy in texture instead of in bits even though I have mashed them up nicely....maybe someone can enlighten me on this :p but whatever it tasted good anyway...I passed the homecooked standard :p since no one in the family complained thus far LOL! the rest of the photos are for drooling...food porno are healthy and are calories-less :P Shrimps can served in different preparations .
