What animal is mighty, large and has stripes all over its body? Without a doubt, it is definitely the tiger that roams the rainforests and grasslands. Do you know that this animal also has a sea counterpart that might also be part of your diet? Like their land counterpart, tiger prawns are striped, large-bodied prawns found naturally in Indo-pacific, Eastern Pacific, Northern Australia, and Southeast Asia. As a highly valuable seafood species, these prawns are targeted widely by commercial fishers and farmed primarily in seawater. Tiger prawns are packed with health benefits such as protein that builds body tissues, vitamins that boost our immune system and increase metabolism for better health.
Thinking of tasty dishes that you can cook with this nutritious seafood species? Here’s a recipe for tiger shrimp cooked with grated coconut — a wonderful combination of local ingredients and flavours that’ll whet your appetite! First, rub the prawn with turmeric powder and MAGGI CukupRasa. After that, fry the prawns until half cooked and set aside. Next, fry some sliced red onions, garlic, ground ginger and MAGGI Sambal until fragrant. Flavour your dish by adding curry powder, curry leaves and dried tamarind slices and a little water. Once the dish is cooked until the oil separates, add in the fried prawns, roasted coconut paste, some sugar and MAGGI CukupRasa. Mix well and be ready to serve!
