快速入味 紹興醉蝦 Drunken Prawns

Look at the color of the prawns. They are cooked just nice. The color would be dull if over-cooked.

Steps:
1. Boil the raw prawns in ‘lemon’ water (to kill the fishy smell) till they float.
2. Turn off the fire and let the prawns simmer for 1 minute.
3. Transfer them quickly to iced water mixed with Shaoxing wine.
4. Soak for 20 mins.
The hot prawn meats absorb the wine under rapid cold temperature (入味).
