If you are a fan of seafood and crave the flavors of a restaurant-style dish, then this recipe for Sweet Sour Prawns is a must-try. With its perfect balance of sweet and tangy flavors, it is sure to satisfy your taste buds.
To recreate the authentic restaurant taste, the prawns are first marinated in a blend of soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar. This combination creates a delicious sweet and sour sauce that coats the prawns and infuses them with flavor.

To achieve the perfect restaurant-style presentation, serve the Sweet Sour Prawns over a bed of steamed white rice or alongside some crispy noodles. Top it off with a garnish of chopped green onions or cilantro for an extra touch of freshness.
