Steam Japanese Tofu with Prawn and chinese mushroom

Japanese tofu or also known as egg tofu, you either love them or hate them. Some find it too soft and eggie, some don’t. I find it very cheap.hahha..yes. I bought this japanese tofu, 3 for only Rm2 at cold storage (Summit, subang. No i didn’t go all the way there to buy the tofu la. Got replacement rpm ma in the morning..hehe). Remember the previousΒ prawn dish? That i have some left over prawns? About only 5 la, but good enough for me and my mom (since in the afternoon its just 2 of us anyway and you must be thinking 5 enough?really?haha..iya ba, now days..don’t really eat that much..hmmm) Anyway, thanks to my mum, i thought i have to deveined the prawns again kan, tapi sudah..my mum done it for me already..hehe…thanks mum.muaks!..So for that i give her some of my prawns lo..hehehe good son kan..(cis..konon la.hehe)

Chinese mushroom? Why chinese? why not indian or malay or hindustan or keling?hehe..ops..anyway.its chinese cause i think it is la, well they look like one anyway. Before cooking them, you need to rinse them a bit and soak them in hot water until they’re soft and tender. About 30mins or so, squeeze out access water and cut the stem and cut into cubes. Don’t throw away the water, add a little oyster sauce and a dash of sesame oil and that will be your sauce for the dish.

Place the tofu on a plate, then mushroom on top of each tofu and lastly prawn on top of it. Pour the sauce into the plate and let it steam together with the tofu. For about less than 10mins (as u know, prawn cooks easily and your mushroom is already tender anyway, so not too long yeah). You’ll know when its done when the prawn starts to curl up and it’s colour changes orangie pink. With the mushroom’s sauce steam together with the tofu and the juice from the prawn from steaming, hmm…need i say more?Β And the best thing is that you can have this as an appetizer or a meal itself. πŸ™‚
