It’s time for prawns or shrimps again for my family. I bought a packet of king prawns and a packet of ready cooked shrimps. It was a little difficult to decide which one to cook first. Finally I went for the shrimps first. I could do a shrimp and vegetable stir fry. I had bok choy in the fridge so that would probably be a very good combination. The green colour of the vegetable and the shrimps would be beautiful.
Stir fries are always easy and quick. I love to stir fry vegetables because there’s minimal vitamins loss and everyone will eat lots of vegetables. It is not possible to eat so much vegetable as salad. Eating more vegetables is important for better health. This dish came out very delicious. We liked it very much. Here’s my recipe to share. It’s enough for 3-4 persons.
600g bok choy
fried shallot oil
Wash the bok choy well. Cut into halves at the middle. Cut the lower stem into halves again, lengthwise. Heat up some shallot oil in the frying pan. Add in the bok choy and stir fry for a while until cooked. Dish it up and arrange it on a plate.
300g cooked shrimps
2T corn flour
4 pips of garlic (peeled and chopped)
a small piece of ginger (washed and cut into strips)
some green onion (chopped)
Marinade the prawns with the salt and corn flour for about 30 minutes. Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Add the ginger and garlic and fry until fragrant. Then add the shrimps and green onions and continue to fry.
Add the seasoning sauce in Ingredients C below. Stir until it boils. Pour it over the vegetables and serve hot. It goes very well with rice, noodles or pasta.
Ingredients C (seasoning sauce)
2t corn flour
4T soya sauce
1t sesame oil
Put everything in Ingredients C together in a small bowl. Mix it well before adding to the shrimps.
