Spicy Prawn Stir Fry

I am not really a big fan of sea food, but there is one particular sea food that I like. Prawns. There are so many ways of cooking them. Stir frying, adding them to stews or curries, pickling, deep frying, grilling, etc. These delicate crustaceans cook quickly. The only time consuming part is cleaning/deveining (which I dislike the most!). Once that’s done, everything else is pretty much easy.

A very simple way to prepare these beauties are to quickly stir fry them in a hot wok or a pan. This recipe is an Oriental style, spicy appetizer, which is stir fried with some chilli flakes, onions, ginger, garlic and multi-colored bell peppers to add some crunch and also to make it look vibrant.

This stir fry takes just about 10 minutes to cook. Have this with Vegetable Chopsuey or Tofu Fried Rice for a simple, lovely Oriental themed lunch or dinner.

Happy cooking! 🙂
