Ocean Prawn Cups ( Kai Kam Tun Gung )


These are steamed cups designed to remind you of the ocean, with a frothing white salty sea and prawns to bring the seafood into the dish. The cups are filled with the whites of salted egg, and spring onions for flavouring.

Ingredients for 4 people
100 gms Prawns
4 Salty Eggs
2 Tablespoons Chopped Spring Onion
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/4 Teaspoon White Pepper
50 ml Chicken Stock

1. Take the white of the salty eggs, mix them with lemon juice, white pepper and the chopped spring onions. Add the stock and mix.
2. Pour into small tin foil cups and steam in a Chinese steamer for 5 minutes.
3. Clean and shell the prawns, don't forget to cut down the back and remove the gut. Arrange the head and prawn meat as in the photograph and continue steaming for another 5 minutes.
4. Once cooked, you can cut away the tin foil cup to reveal the prawn cup.

Serve With
Thai Fragrant Rice
