Thai Garlic Pepper Prawns - How You Can Master This Stir Frying Dish Too!

Thai Garlic Pepper Prawns is also known as Gratiam Prik Thai Goong in Thailand.

Thai Food Lovers

This is a quick stir frying dish with a classic blending of garlic, pepper and spices that you can whip up in a flash especially when you do not want to overcook the prawns ...

It is better to use the larger size prawns rather than shrimps for tastes and texture especially when the sauce can be quite strong and the larger prawns are able to absorp the flavor of the sauce - simply put, it is able to hold the taste better.

This is an absolutely simple dish with minimal ingredients and so delicious that it is enjoyed throughout Thailand.
