Sempoi Ginger & Tamarind Juice Infused Fried Crayfish

1 medium size raw crayfish @ udang kara (any type of prawn can also do :)),
1 1/2 inch ginger, match stick sliced (or anyway u like)
1 small onion / half large onion, sliced
1 green chilli, cut vertical halfway intact
1/3 cup tamarind juice (about a tablespoon of tamarind pulp mix with 1/3 cup water)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 tablespoon oil

- take out flesh & discard shell, cut into small bite pieces
- saute ginger, onion, green chili till about caramelized
- put in crayfish, stir fry
- midway, add tamarind juice, soy sauce & sugar
- continue stir fry till well combined & broth slightly reduced
- do not overcook crayfish or it'll be too chewy

* i tried with prawn 2 days ago & the taste was good as this .. :) (that's what my family & a friend told me ;))

Happy trying ... :)
