MY GUESS TO ADD PRAWNS WOULD BE FIRST at # 2 - " Heat peanut oil in a hot wok & STIR FRY PRAWNS for 1 minute, (I would remove them & set prawns aside & then re add at # 6 As it says "Add stock & simmer 2 minutes or TILL PRAWNS are just tender PERSONALLY (AS YOU HAVE ALREADY STIR FRIED & COOKED PRAWNS in # 2) I WOULD ADD AT # 7 & STIR IN & COMBINE. [YOU DO NOT WANT TO OVER COOK & THEY WILL COOK A LITTLE IN THEIR OWN HEAT IN STEP # 2]

If you prepare all your ingredients prior to cooking and you can cook this meal from start to finish in 5 mins.. then follow the steps to the letter.. cooking your prawns first and leaving them in the wok until the end.

If you cant figure out to replace peanut oil with another oil, you dont deserve to cook these recipes. Idiot

Substitute the peanut oil with vegetable oil
