Stir-fry prawns with mushroom & broccoli

Tender prawns are great in stir-fries, the cashew nuts give this dish an added crunch and the shiitake mushrooms are tender and full of flavour

  • 1 tbsp. cornflour
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 225g tiger prawns, uncooked
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • spray oil for frying
  • 25g unsalted cashew nuts

  • 1 small piece of ginger root, finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, diagonally sliced
  • 4 tbsp rice wine

What to do:

  1. Mix the cornflour and cayenne in a bowl, add the prawns and coat thoroughly, then mix in the soy sauce and leave in a cool place for about 30 minutes.
  2. Spray some oil into a wok and place over a high heat, add the cashews and stir-fry for 30 seconds or until golden, then remove them to a plate.
  3. Next add the mushrooms and stir fry for 1-2mins until golden.
  4. Add the prawns and stir-fry for about 1-2 minutes, until they turn pink. Add the remaining ingredients and stir fry for another minute.
