Sriracha Chilli Prawn

Sriracha Chilli Prawn
for 2 servings
Instead of using the common chili sauce, I will choose the sriracha to replace it because it is hotter than that! But why don’t just use the whole chili? Well, i don’t like to bite the chili sometimes. The umami flavour of the prawn, egg and tomato is surprisingly a very good combination. The spiciness of sriracha and the sourness of tomato balance each other. For me, I always make extra sauce for my rice. Well, it’s my habit of eating rice! The more sauce the better!
