Stir-Fry Broccoli With Prawns


Since the last stir frying garlic spears posting, I have received several more requests for simple and healthy stir frying vegetables recipes. So, here it is, another easy stir fry broccoli with prawns recipe. If you are not into prawns, then either replace the prawns with scallops or just some carrot slices instead. The carrots will provide the "sweetness" needed for this stir fry dish, obviously making it tastier!



Stir-Fry Broccoli With Prawns

Ingredients


450 - 500 g Broccoli, cut into smaller florets and blanched
200 g Prawns, shelled and tail intact
3 Cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
1 tsp Minced Ginger
2 Tbsp Peanut Oil
Sea Salt to taste

Sauce
1 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 1/2 tsp Corn Flour
10 Tbsp Chicken Stock or Water

Method

Heat the oil in a wok and cook the garlic on low heat. Remove the garlic when they are fragrant and golden in color.

Turn the heat on high. Cook the prawns briefly and toss in the ginger ,broccoli and garlic. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes and add in the sauce. Bring it to a quick boil and season with sea salt. The sauce should be thickened and the broccoli are cooked but still firm. Serve immediately.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
