Deliciously addictive, salted egg dishes are fast becoming a mainstay of Singaporean cuisine. Try it yourself with a fusion take on a traditional seafood pasta!
Let's start cooking!
Step 1 - Cook pasta
- In a pot, boil 4 L water with 2 Tbsp salt. Once boiling, add spaghetti and cook according to packet instructions. Drain pasta and coat spaghetti with 2 Tbsp olive oil. Set aside.
Step 2 - Fry aromatics
- In a separate pan on medium heat, melt butter and add in garlic, curry leaves and chili padi. Fry for 1 minute until fragrant.
Step 3 - Add salted egg yolks, sugar and whipping cream
Add salted egg yolks into the pan. Using a fork or a spatula, mash the yolks and mix into the sauce until it is well combined.
In the same pan, add sugar and whipping cream. Mix well for 4 to 5 minutes, until sugar dissolves and sauce slightly thickens. Season to taste with salt if needed.
Step 4 - Add pasta and prawns
- Toss spaghetti and prawns in the sauce. Stir well for 4 to 5 minutes, until pasta is evenly coated.
