-1 piece soft tofu (approx. 1lb)
-12 prawns
-1 green onion
-a few sprigs of cilantro
-1 tbs oil
-3 tbs soy sauce
-2 tbs water
-1 ½ tbs sugar

What to Do:
Peel, devein, and crush prawns. Cut tofu into 12 pieces and arrange on a heat safe dish. Place a prawn on each piece of tofu and lightly press into place. Steam on high heat for 5-8 mins. While tofu is steaming, wash and shred onion into thing strips, cut cilantro into short pieces. Mix together soy sauce, water and sugar and give the sauce a taste. The sweetness and saltiness should be even, adjust accordingly. Pour sauce over tofu after it’s done steaming. Heat oil until hot and carefully pour over tofu. Top the dish off with onions and cilantro.

The hot oil should sizzle when it comes in contact with the tofu and sauce. Scalding the sauce and tofu with oil helps bring out the unique flavors of the dish.
