I went to a Chinese restaurant recently and was looking at the menu for some seafood dish in the menu. I saw a dish called Fried Prawns with Macadamia nuts – this is something that I have not tried before and so I decided to order it. When the dish arrived, I saw prawns with the head , legs and shell removed and deveined as well. I think this is good because it is troublesome to remove the head and shell of prawns when eating them. The prawns looked fresh and clean on the plate and I saw some slices of vegetables being added. However I was also eagerly trying to find the Macadamia nuts in this dish.
The prawns tasted fresh and the meat was firmed. The Macadamia nuts were roasted and it was crunchy and slightly sweet and salty as well. Overall I liked this dish and would probably tried to cook it in my home. I understand that Macadamia nuts is good for our health. It contain many minerals, proteins, fibre and monosaturated fats; which are good fats which helps to reduce the body bad cholesterol levels. I think the roasted Macadamia nuts taste better as it is more crunchy. However it may be less healthy as perhaps salt and sugar has been added to enhance the taste.
The Fried Prawns with Macadamia nuts is a simple and yet delicious dish. It is easy to prepare and cook. All you need are fresh prawns – with shells totally removed and deveined. Then add some vegetables – in the photos you can see carrots, mushrooms and slices of green pepper being added. I think the Macadamia nuts should be added last when the dish is cooked or almost done. I would want to add the roasted Macadamia nuts last in the cooking process – let it fry for 1 to 2 minutes together with the prawns and vegetables before serving it up. For those who does not liked Macadamia nuts, perhaps you can substitute it with roasted Cashew nuts which I think is also great.
