Thermomix Steamed Garlic Prawns

Steam cooking is one of the healthiest way to cook seafood as it does not dry out the delicate flesh and preserves more nutrients than high heat cooking. Try steaming with your Thermomix varoma and you will be surprise with the texture and natural sweetness of food that is not overly seasoned with commercial seasonings.
