Tomato Garlic Prawns

Tonight's dinner, Tomato Garlic Prawns, was courtesy of my box of goodies from Asian Supermarket 365.

I'm beginning to re-think the whole cooking-out-of-a-package thing - I know I'd never be able to make this Sauce for Tomato Garlic Prawns from scratch and have it taste as good. Probably because I don't have yeast extract, disodium 5'-inosinate, and disodium 5'-guanylate in my pantry.

I sauteed a little more than 1/2 a pound of cleaned shrimp (saving the shells for stock, of course) in a bit of canola oil, added the pouch of sauce, and stirred to heat through. Served with rice (topped with Maggi Hot Chilli Sauce, soy sauce and lemon juice) and cucumber-chili salad, it was perfect.
