Zesty Chilli Tiger Prawns

This stir-fry is full of flavour and can be served up in a matter of minutes. The dish was inspired by all the cheap and cheerful seafood places in Hong Kong that I visited, where some of the most amazing seafood was served! I was particularly taken with a garlic prawn dish I ate – the prawns were butterflied (cut in half down the middle of spine), topped with generous amounts of butter, garlic and spring onions and steamed. My tangy chilli and garlic prawns is inspired by that memorable dish. Make sure you buy raw tiger prawns because if you buy cooked, they will be too chewy when cooked again in this dish.

Notes

CHING'S TIPS

  • To help vegetables cook in the wok, add a splash or two of water to help create some “steam” whilst stir frying.

  • Use msg free products where possible.

  • Groundnut oil can be substituted with vegetable oil, sunflower oil or corn oil.

  • A large number of dishes can be adapted to suit vegetarians. Look out for where you can substitute the meat for tofu or vegetables and use vegetarian sauces.

  • Use low sodium soy sauce where possible
