150g Raw king prawns
100g Tender stem broccoli
100g Green beans
2 tsp Reduced salt soy sauce
2 tsp Groundnut oil
1/2 tsp Freshly grated ginger
1 Clove of garlic
1 medium sized lime
1 tsp Toasted sesame seeds
1 Red chilli pepper
Chop the garlic and 1/2 of the chilli finely and add to a bowl, mix both with the soy sauce and the juice of 1/2 of the lime, add the grated ginger and marinate the king prawns in the mixture.
While the prawns are marinating, prepare your vegetable by washing & trimming them and steam cook until tender (takes 4-6 mins).
Drain the vegetables and leave aside to sit for a minute or two. Using a non stick wok add the oil (when wok is heated), on medium to high heat stir-fry the prawns, mixing and turning often (prawns take 2/3 minutes to cook), once the prawns are pink add the vegetables and cook for another 20 seconds, take off heat and you are ready to plate up.
Just before serving add some chopped up chilli pieces, a slice of lime and sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds all over. ENJOY.
