King Prawns, Tiger prawns, whatever prawns or shrimps, they are all my favourites. I love them in whatever way they are cooked. The usual way I cook them are in hot pot, prawn fritters, prawn noodles, dumplings, salad, curries and a whole long list of others.
I bought a packet of ready cooked king prawns the other day & thought I’ll do a quick stir fry with some vegetables. I cooked it with some green beans and small red radishes in Korean bean paste. Korean bean paste is very special. I really like it when frying meat , seafood or even vegetables. You can even make a very delicious soup base with it. You can get it from Oriental or Korean shops. I bought it from a Chinese supermarket.
This dish was very delicious. My daughter and I had a very light, satisfying lunch, just this dish and rice. Here’s my recipe to share:
5 small red radishes
150 green beans
300g ready cooked king prawns
fried garlic oil
1T Korean bean paste
Cut the radishes into slices and the beans into halves.
Heat up some fried garlic oil in the frying pan. Add the beans and fry for a whole. Add the bean paste and continue to fry until fragrant. Then add the sliced radishes and prawns. Add in the water and continue to fry for a while and dish up. It goes very well with rice, noodles or potatoes.
