This is a dish called asam prawn. It’s a fried dish whereby the prawn is fried with a type of fruit called asam jawa. Asam jawa is both sweet and sour at the same time. If you look closely at the picture, you can see the seeds of the fruit. The asam used in this picture has already been preserved.
Great Nyonya dish. The shells of the prawn are left on so that the prawn itself doesn’t shrink.
