Prawn stir fry recipe with garlic and pak choi.

Prawns take on garlic flavours very well and the crunchy nutty flavour of the pak choi works brilliantly with lots of sliced garlic. This is a brilliant, very quick, mid-week supper with plenty of flavour.

Serves 4

300g large prawns, preferably tails on
2 pak choi, chopped into slices
4 large cloves garlic, sliced
Knob of ginger, grated or finely chopped
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seed oil
2 tablespoons rice bran oil or other cooking oil
2 teaspoons Chinese five spice
1 teaspoon Szechuan peppercorns
1 fresh red chilli (optional)

Heat the cooking oil in the wok then throw in the garlic, ginger, spices and peppercorns and cook for about one minute before quickly adding all the other ingredients constantly tossing them in the wok. Cook until the prawns have turned pink and serve immediately with plain rice or noodles.
