Chilli Prawn Stir Fry

Chilli Prawn Stir Fry
Serves 2

One thing is for sure, that I haven’t quit sugar (or fish and chips) this holiday. I’m looking forward to going home and eating oodles of fresh food, full of flavour. I think this stir fry is going to be on high rotation on our dinner menu because it’s so quick, healthy and super yum!

Are you a fan of the stir fry too? What do you put in yours?

2 small carrots, cut into thin strips
100g snow peas, trimmed
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 large garlic clove, crushed
1 large fresh green chilli, finely sliced
2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
1 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine or dry sherry
1 teaspoon sesame oil
250g prawns
How to 
    1. Heat a wok until hot, then stir in the veggies, oil, garlic and chilli. Cook briskly, stirring and tossing for 2 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile cook the noodles in a pan of boiling water.
    3. Mix the soy sauce, cooking wine and sesame oil into the veggies and cook for a minute.
    4. Add the prawns and stir fry for about 2 minutes  until piping hot.
    5. Serve the stir fry with noodles or steamed rice.

    I love the look of this stirfry unfortunately my husband dislikes prawns, how dare he! but i will certainly have a go when he is away next. looks right up my alley 🙂

    • I keep walking round Sainsburys fantasising about what sweets and treats I’m going to bring back! Never mind that hubby doesn’t like prawns, that’s more for you 🙂

  • I’ve never used prawns in a stir fry before! Probably because I can’t eat them, but Jesse can so I think I need to make this for him sometime soon!
