One dish that you will find anywhere in the world, is garlic prawns. A taste sensation, even for those who normally shy away for prawns. Here in Pattaya you can find plenty of prawns in the fresh markets, and even in the supermarkets. If these are not available, you can always use frozen prawns, de-frosting in water until all the ice is melted.
I also recommend de-shelling the prawn, removing head and tail, and slicing down the back to remove the dark colored vein. However, if you are making this for some N.E. villagers, they enjoy crunching their way through everything.
In a wok or a large pan heat the oil and butter. Add the prawns and garlic and stir well.
Stir fry, moving the prawns around all the time until the prawns are pink (about 4-5 minutes).
Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and scatter the chopped coriander over them as garnish. Serve at once if they are as an appetizer, or over Jasmine rice as a main.
