Asparagus is a very delicious vegetable. It has a lovely sweetness. Since prawns are my favourite, adding to asparagus will surely add extra flavour to this dish. I used king prawns here. This is again a very simple, easy and quick stir fry, yet very delicious. You don’t need much seasoning to this dish. Just some oyster sauce, salt and sesame oil would do.
When you buy asparagus, select those that are straight, firm, green and with tightly-closed tips. I always go for the big ones which are easier to handle. Fresh asparagus are very sweet and tender. Usually I would cut off a short section from the lower part of the stem and peel of the outer skin before adding to the rest. Do not overcook.
Here’s how I cook this simple dish:
Heat up some fried garlic or shallot oil in a pan. Add the lower part of the stems of the asparagus and stir fry for a while. Then add the top part of the stems. Continue to fry for a little while more.
Finally add the prawns and the seasonings. Keep frying until the prawns are cooked. Dish up onto a clean plate and serve hot. It’s very delicious.
