Steam Prawns with Cucumbers

This is one of my favourite dishes and it’s so easy to prepare especially if you are already planning to cook rice using your rice cooker. I called it steam prawns with cucumbers.

Ingredients (serves 2 to 3 persons):
- De-shelled prawns (10-15 middle size)
- 1 cucumber, cut into wedges
- 1 tomato, cut into wedges
- 1 tsp of oil
- chopped garlic
- Sprinkle of salt
- Dashes of white pepper (optional)

Steps:
1. Arrange the prawns, cucumber and tomato in a bowl / soup plate.
2. Pour the oil over the ingredients.
3. Add garlic, sprinkle some salt and add few dashes of pepper.
4. Put into the steamer plate in your rice cooker.
5. When your rice is cooked, your dish will be cooked too.

If you are not using the rice cooker, then steam the conventional way or do microwave cooking (use your own judgement the cooking duration, should not be too long as the ingredients are easily cooked).

I love cucumbers but my other half is not keen. He’s not much into prawns either. Hmm, does this mean a special dish for me??? :)
