Ingredients

  • 200g raw shelled large / tiger prawns,
  • For the marinade:
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Pinch chilli powder
  • Half teaspoon sweetener (eg, xylitol or sucralose)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • For the stir fried vegetables:
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and sliced
  • 2cm piece of ginger root, peeled and grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 medium chestnut mushrooms, wiped and sliced
  • 1 small head (about 80g) of pak choi (bok choy)
  • Handful (about 80g) fresh bean sprouts
  • 1-2 tbsp water

Method

  1. Mix together the marinade ingredients and stir in the prawns. Leave for as long as you can, but a minimum of 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile prepare the vegetables for the stir fry, and preheat the grill.
  3. Thread the marinated prawns onto skewers and place under a hot grill for 2-3 minutes, turning once until the prawns are pink and cooked through.
  4. Heat the oil in a wok or large preferably non stick saucepan and stir fry the vegetables together over a high heat. Add the water if the vegetables begin to stick, or you can add the remaining marinade if you prefer.
  5. Serve the vegetables on a warmed plate and top with the prawns.

Tip: To avoid adding more oil when stir frying, add a tablespoon or more of water if the vegetables start to stick.

Storage: Serve straight away. Not suitable for storing.
