Golden Seafood Bean-curd 黄金海鲜豆腐

Made from simple ingredients bean-curd, prawns and egg, the humble golden seafood bean-curd packs more flavour than it looks. Its crispy skin is all but a disguise for the soft filling inside. Consume while hot and crispy in order to taste the full texture and flavour of this dish.
