Delicious king prawns and vegetables stir fry

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.

Ready cooked king prawns

Ready cooked king prawns

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
3/4C water

Cut the radishes into slices and the beans into halves.

Frying the vegetables

Frying the vegetables

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.

Another nice homey dish! I love big prawns so this will work for me

I just love prawns which can be cooked in many ways. Can’t wait to have this quick and easy dish:)

@Divina - It’s a simple dish for busy days. I just love the Korean bean paste.

@Penny - This dish just takes minutes to cook as the prawns are ready cooked ones.

@Anncoo - I don’t have many prawn dishes so have to learn more ways to cook them.

Lovely combination of veges with prawns.For now my favorite would be salted egg prawns,follow by butter prawns,pepper prawns and chilly prawns.

kristy  on November 23rd, 2009

Mary, is the Korean Bean paste spicy or just like our local normal bean paste flavour? Never have them before!

Mary  on November 23rd, 2009

@foodlovee - Thanks for adding. I love the butter prawns too. Yet to try the pepper prawns and chili prawns. Sounds very delicious.

@Kristy - There are 3 types of Korean bean paste…green box, brown box and red box. The brown one is not spicy, green one is slightly spicy but red one is spicy. They are very good. I love them. Try them if you can find them.

Those prawns sure look sumptous. Never taste Korean paste before and I must say your signature looks great!

Natasha - 5 Star Foodie  on November 23rd, 2009

These king prawns sound like such a delight! Korean bean paste must add wonderful flavors!

Mary  on November 23rd, 2009

@Cheah - Thanks for compliment. Just what a thrill to put up my signature there. I think I need to reward myself with a lovely dessert :)

@Natasha - The king prawns were really good for this dish. I liked it very much. Combines very well with the vegetables and Korean bean paste.

Sarah, Maison Cupcake  on November 23rd, 2009

That Korean bean paste looks really tasty. Wish I knew where I could get some in London.

veron  on November 23rd, 2009

Yes, I definitely could eat prawns in anything. Stir-fry is my favorite!

Mary  on November 23rd, 2009

@Sarah - The Korean paste is indeed very tasty. You should be able to get them at Chinatown…..all those Chinese supermarkets. I think I have seen it there. Give a try.

@veron - Wow…you are another prawn fan like me. The best thing about it is that it’s so quick to cook, yet so delicious.

Drick  on November 23rd, 2009

another great way to eat shrimp…. my sister & husband are coming down for thanksgiving and quess what’s for dinner Friday nite - yep, a shrimp fest….

Brad  on November 23rd, 2009

Looks like a tasty recipe, thanks.

Mary  on November 23rd, 2009

@Drick - You always have shrimps on your side. Most of your recipes seem to revolve around shrimps. I’m so jealous you get so much fresh shrimps there.I have to depend on frozen ones here. Guess I have to be thankful….at least I get to eat.

@Brad - Thanks for visiting and for comment. Hope you try out soon…an Asian recipe.

Oh Definitely my cup of tea! I love shrimps sauteed in this way. btw, I never try to put bean paste in the sauteed dish ( always use them for soup). this is a great idea! I still have lots of them in my fridge:)

Blackswan  on November 23rd, 2009

Clever use of red radish. I’ve only tried the white ones, for soup…..

3hungrytummies  on November 24th, 2009

yet another simple and delicious dish!!

Mary  on November 24th, 2009

@Light Delight with Tou Tou - I love bean paste in soups too. But it’s very delicious fried with meat. Give a try….you’ll like it.

@Blackswan - The red radishes look very pretty and they taste delicious. I over cooked them a little. They can be eaten raw.

@3hungrytummies - Thanks for comment. Hope you try out soon.
