About this recipe: These sinful orangey balls help to enhance the flavour of food, especially when they’re mashed, smeared generously over your dish & then sautéed in a hot wok. While most places serve with shells, I prefer mine peeled & deep-fry with batter to let the egg-yolk “envelope” each prawn. For the dare-devils, here’s my version of Salted Egg-Yolk Prawns with Shichimi.
While this dish is delicious, it’s not meant for those worrying about going into instant cardiac arrest. Salted egg-yolks are known to be unhealthy - one salted duck egg yolk weighing about 70g, contains 359mg of cholesterol!
