Sweet-and-Sour Giant Prawns Thai Style

Giant prawns in a spicy Thai-style sauce to tickle your taste buds

Step 1
Peel and chop the garlic. Skin the tomato, and cut it into small chunks. Chop the cucumber and pineapple into small chunks, and cut the onion into thin slices.

Step 2
To skin a tomato, cut a cross in the bottom of the tomato, dip it into boiling water for 5 seconds and let it cool in icy water. After this hot ‘n’ cold bath the skin comes off nice ‘n’ easy!

Step 3
Mix the sauce ingredients together, and add the prawns and vegetables.

Step 4
Take out four sheets of SAGA Cooking Paper. Place a quarter of the vegetable–prawn mix in the centre of each of the sheets. Make a SAGA pouch: lift the edges of the paper up, and tie into a pouch with cooking string.

Step 5
Steam the pouches for approx. 10 minutes in a bamboo steamer (or, if not available, in a steam cooker).

Step 6
Serve with rice or noodles.
