Stir Fry Sea Prawns With Fermented Soy Bean Paste

Marketing day for me is always a Saturday morning ,and it is the happiest day in the week for me :)  A day that I feel I am in heaven surrounded by food :p  What do you call a person who loves to cook and eat all day....a glutton or a pig...I guess ....okay I am both LOL!   The farmers market is a place I frequent to get my cooking ingredients.  Lots of fresh vegetables and fruits and you can see stalls selling fresh seafood too and not to forget to mention all kinds of plants are sold there.  Herb plants like rosemary and thymes are sold even at the farmers market.  So you tell me, am I not happy?  I am !!!! 

I saw some very fresh and big sea prawns and I already how I am going to cook them. Could not resist the temptation though I have been told to stay away from seafood ;p   Here is a dish that will take only 15 mins of your time to prepare.   Yea, stir fry sea prawns with fermented soy bean paste...fermented soy bean paste with garlic and chilli...they are perfect combination for this very fresh sea prawns. The prawns are succulent and sweet.  The natural sweetness of the prawns plus the savory sauce makes this dish a dish to die for. Hope you are drooling as you read on  LOL! I am such a wicked person..making my friends and readers drools hungrily at my food porn :p

As you guys know that I frequent the farmers market very often, I need a really good pair of walking shoes/sandals for I am a person who is not just particular about the food I cook and eat but also am particular about my physical body....I want to look good and for me, beauty is in a person feet.  I want to have beautiful feet .  A pair of good shoes will prevent blisters and corns .  I believe that if you wear a pair of shoe that is not of good quality, the feet will smell.  So for me , this is very important. Solve the foot problems before the feet can be beautiful :)  The feet need pampering too not just our face and body.   Okay of late I digress very often when writing food post...I write as my mind wanders.....okay back to this dish....good food gives a healthy body and I hope my prawn dish will make your day !
