Prawn, Garlic and Chilli Stir Fry

Serves 2

  • 10 green (uncooked) prawns, peeled and sliced in half
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red chilli, de-seeded and thinly sliced (use more for extra punch)
  • 1 pak choy/bok choy, roughly chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 5 closed cup mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • small handful of beansprouts
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • fresh coriander (for garnishing, optional)
  1. The most important aspect of making a stir-fry is to make sure all of your ingredients are chopped, washed and ready at hand to pop into the wok as you fry. The vegetables should retain a crunch for a fuller flavour and consistency. The longer you cook a vegetable for, the more goodness is lost.
  2. Heat a wok or frying pan until almost smoking hot. Add the sunflower oil followed by the garlic, king prawns, chilli, zucchini and mushrooms and fry for 1-2 minutes. Next goes in the pak choy, beansprouts, soy sauce, sugar and water and continue cooking for 2 minutes.
  3. Serve with thinly sliced spring onions and if you have some at hand a little fresh chopped coriander.

This was a delicious dinner. I included zucchini noodles for myself and I cooked rice noodles for my partner. I also added a teaspoon of cornflour to thicken the sauce slightly.

This was amazing!!!! Left out the bean sprouts and mushrooms, but added shallots to the garlic and chilli mix and lime juice and ginger to the dressing.
