Sweet and Sour Prawns with Tomato and Plum SauceOnce you'll taste these yummy prawns, you'll ask for them again and again. The exotic tomato and plum sauce used in this recipe not only brings the glaze on the prawns but also elevates the flavor by many folds. You can also use calamari or oysters replacing the prawns altogether. Depending on your taste, you can increase or decrease the amount of plum used in the sauce. For best results, saute or grill these prawns on a low flame after keeping them in the sauce marinade for at least 2 to 3 hours. Leftovers of these prawns can either be included with hot egg noodles or can be included within dumpling stuffing. So let's get started and make these heavenly prawns made in a few simple steps.
