Live prawns are abundantly available at the market and very reasonably priced. These species of prawns are usually quickly cooked in boiling water and eaten with a dipping sauce made of scallions, ginger and soy sauce.
Instead of cooking them in water, how would they turn out they were microwaved without any cooking medium? We popped some prawns into the microwave and covered them with some plastic film. I also added some Chinese wine. Then we set it on high for 1 minute. So once they turned pink, we took them out and tried it. They are very tasty and all the flavors are sealed inside.
