Prawns in Tomato Sauce

Don't we all love seafood especially shrimp/prawn ? Years ago I was once diagnosed with seafood allergy but luckily it's gone in months after I took some medication. I love any type of Prawn or Shrimp cooking.Yea ,we called Shrimp in US and A.Most of the time I like to cook hot and spicy shrimp for myself..If I cook the shrimp too hot and spicy,Mishu can't eat it.She still eat spicy food but not too spicy.So now I purposely cook some shrimp in tomato sauce for her.I recalled when I was young my mom like to cook this dish for us..It's really a scrumptious and everybody friendly food!

15 pieces large head on prawn,trimmed and washed
5 cloves,peeled and chopped
1 large onion,peeled and sliced
1 stalk scallion,washed and cut
1 small bell pepper,washed and sliced
1/2 cup ketchup or tomato puree
1/2 water if choose ketchup
2 tbsp sugar
salt to taste
2 tbsp cooking oil
1:Heat skillet or wok with oil at medium high heat.Add in chopped garlic,fry until lightly brown .Add in clean prawns,onion and bell pepper,use spatula to fry the prawn for 1 minutes,then add in ketchup or tomato puree,sugar,water and salt.
2:Cook the ingredients for 3-5 minutes or until the sauce thicken or cooked.Add in cut scallion,then dish out and serve warm with rice.

I love tomato prawns! Sourish sweet and delicious. You always seem to cook the foods that are close to our hearts as Asian/Msian. Yummy!
