I made this tonight...SO GOOD! Had a hard time finding XO sauce, but I'm glad I did! I don't know what is in the sauce that is so fragrant (star anise?) but it was simple, healthy, and incredible. Will make again!

Thks so much for trying out, Dawn! Usually no star anise inside XO Sauce but there're shrimps, shallots, sesame oil that make it taste so good. Some XO sauce comes with dried scallop too & it's really tasty!

Next time u try one of my recipes, send me your food pix credit to http://luxuryhaven.blogspot.com & I'll showcase it at my blog slide & Facebook Fan Page. Glad this turned out well for u. Happy Cooking & looking fwd to sharing our culinary journey!


The plate of prawns is always emptied in no time; family & guests love it! This time, I'm using my new toy, the Happy Call Pan to cook the dish.
