Sauteed turmeric shrimps also known as ‘udang goreng kunyit' is a flavourful dish despite the minimal amount of ingredients used. The subtle taste of turmeric enhances the deliciousness of the prawns. Moreover, the vegetables which are added to the dish make it healthy and wholesome.
Cook shrimps with shells or without?
In this recipe, I cooked the shrimps together with the shells as they enhance the flavour of the dish. You may also cook the shrimps without the shells, if that is your preference.
Vegetables to add to turmeric shrimps
Besides snow peas, other vegetables such as carrot, green beans or capsicum may be added.
Can other types of meat be used?
Yes, of course. Udang masak kunyit is just one of the many variations of this stir-fry dish with turmeric. There are other versions which use chicken, beef or squids. Simply substitute shrimps with the meat of your choice.
I would highly recommend this dish as an after work meal because it's so simple and fast to prepare. You will love it. Just remember not to overcook the prawns, else the texture would be tough.
