- 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of chicken stock (or water)
- 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil.
- A pinch of white pepper
- Clean and shell the prawns, pat dry.
- Cut into small pieces and marinate for 10 minutes in salt and cornstarch (mixed with 1/4 teaspoon water).
- Cut Yiou-Tias into 1-inch sections, fry in hot oil until crisp.
- Pat dry, flatten with a spatula or the side of a chopping knife, and tear or cut into small pieces.
- Fry prawns in hot oil, stirring until they change color.
