Blanched Prawns with Sweet Mustard

You know, prawns with mayonnaise is always a very popular dish. Everyone doesn't seem to get bored with that dish. But I get bored cooking that dish too often. :P

So, for a change and something much much more simpler, I did this. It's like the cold dish we get at Chinese wedding dinner but then those were served with mayonnaise (again). Mine, I served it with sweet mustard.

It's super simple. You just need to blanch your prawns then submerged them in previously boiled cooled water. Next, you remove all the shells and sliced them in halves. Arrange them on a plate, spread sweet mustard sparingly over it or you can serve the sauce separately and it's all done. Simple?

For the sweet mustard sauce, I add an additional 1/2 tablespoon of honey to 1 1/2 tablespoon of sweet mustard to make it milder. If you are using 'normal' mustard, you might have to add more honey.

Try this if you want something fast and easy.
