Steamed Prawns with Radish and Lemon Sauce

Steamed Prawns with Radish and Lemon SauceSteamed seafood is one of the healthiest foods on this planet. But, making it equally tasty as fried or fast food is a big challenge. I've tried to make the following steamed prawns absolutely scrumptious with an aromatic and flavorful sauce. Radish not only gives color to the sauce but also adds a unique taste to the entire preparation. Addition of mint to the sauce base can liven up the aroma. The same process can be used for squids and salmons too. Make sure you use the correct quantity of lemon else the texture and taste of the entire sauce may spoil. These prawns go well with steamed rice though munching them as a starter is also a good option. Let's make these tasty and moist steamed prawns.
