Honey Prawn

This is the first time I am trying out some Chinese preparation with prawn. My hubby is a big fan of prawn as well as Chinese food.We Had this dish when we visited Mainland China last time and since then I was thinking to make an attempt to prepare this unusual combination in my own style and believe me it came out so delectable that it got vanished within few minutes. It can be served as a starter in any get together or parties where it will definitely steal the show. It is also an awesome side dish with any Chinese main course.
