Steam Tofu with Shrimps

I made this yesterday for dinner. This dish is simple to prepare and it’s quite healthy. As expected, my boy didn’t want the prawns even after I diced them. Never mind, I try again with something else next time but at least there is still tofu. It’s loaded with Protein!

  • 8 small or medium prawns
  • 1 pack of silken tofu
  • 2 stalk spring onions, diced
  • 1 teaspoon of oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame seed oil
  • A pinch of salt and sugar

How it is done:
  1. Shell and devein the prawns. Keep the shells
  2. Marinate the prawns with a pinch of salt and sugar for 10 mins
  3. In a deep dish or bowl, put the prawns and the shells in it.
  4. Add the white part of the spring onion on the prawns to be steam together. This adds favour.
  5. Remove the prawns when they turn pink. Discard the shells.
  6. Remove the tofu from the pack and place it in a deep dish.
  7. Drain the sauce. Add 1 teaspoon of soy sauce & oyster sauce each and pour it over the tofu to be steamed together for about 5 minutes.
  8. Put the prawns on the tofu and drizzle the sesame seed oil on top & serve.

You can use whole prawns or diced them.

  1. Hi wokkingmum.. :) hello from Indonesia,
    did you say that your son doesn't like prawns? My son hates it also. I don't know how to help him overcome his hate over this poor creature :D.
