🦐 Lotus leaf steamed rice with BC spot prawns 🦐
大蝦荷葉蒸飯

I did not assume it could possibly be doable however I’m tapped out and assume I will want at the very least per week earlier than I can have any extra shrimp 😅 when I’ve this at eating places I’ve had this with crab as a substitute of shrimp. Normally they use plain garlic and egg fried rice however I’ve determined to glam it up with a seafood fried rice.

Fast tip on frying rice, at all times use day outdated rice. I purposely made rice the evening earlier than for this 🍚

What you will want
2 items of dried lotus leaf
Fried rice of your selection (I will go away some directions within the notes)
16 shrimps
6 garlic, minced
2 chili, chopped
1 inexperienced onion, chopped
Four tbsp shaoxing wine
1 bamboo steamer

Technique:
1. Presoak your lotus leaves and minimize off the “middle” which is a giant more durable, the “veiny” a part of the leaf. I simply straight boiled for ~15 seconds to get it delicate as I used to be pressed for time.
2. Layer your lotus leaf to cowl the bamboo steamer then fill with fried rice.
3. Trim the “antennas” and legs off your shrimps. Make 2 small incisions ~1″ aside on the stomach aspect to maintain from curling. Cut up down the opposite aspect to butterfly and fan out throughout the rice.
4. Stuff shrimp with garlic, chili, inexperienced onion, and pour over shaoxing wine.
5. Wrap leaves again over and the steamer to steam for ~20 minutes.

Notes:
For seafood fried rice I take advantage of minced garlic, ginger, inexperienced onion, dried scallops, and imitation crab. Cook dinner your elements earlier than mixing in your day outdated rice. I like so as to add a couple of whisked eggs on the finish to offer the rice it is signature yellow color. Crimson pepper is elective as I simply had half left over.
