Recipe by Kim Ong

This is one of the easiest way to prepare sambal prawn in Singapore. Try it! Remember not to overcooked the prawns.

This recipe is fast, easy to make and tastes great. I omitted the oil (not necessary with coconut milk) and shallots. Also, I added a chopped tomato and some green onions. Finally I adjusted the sugar and salt levels to my taste. My family loved it. Thanks!
