Prawn Stir Fry with Asparagus and Bok Choy

20120518-145825.jpgI’m a fan of light meals consisting of seafood and vegetables.  I make these simple inexpensive meals by buying fresh seafood from my local butcher and fresh vegetables from a local produce store.

  • One Pound of Prawns
  • One bunch of Asperagus
  • Three bunches of Baby Bok Choy
  • Five Cloves of Garlic Cloves
  • Dash of Soy Sauce
  • Tablespoon of Olive Oil for Prawns
  • Tablespoon of Olive Oil for Vegetables
  • Juice from One Lemon for Prawns
  • Spices: Cayenne, Pepper, Salt – sparingly

First I de-veined the prawns and put them in a bowl with a little lemon juice, added pepper and a tiny dash of cayenne. Simply done. I cooked them for about 10 minutes until done.20120518-145845.jpg

I cooked the vegetables seperately from the prawns. The veggies and prawns often cook differently and I wanted some veggies to be crisp and others cooked, so I did them in the following order:

  • Heat up oil and garlic
  • Then add onions
  • Then the baby boy choy
  • Then added a dash of soy sauce and water
  • Sautee for a few minutes
  • Then finish by adding salt, pepper and spice to taste

I removed the veggies and added the asperagus to the same pan with a little butter, retaining some of the juices but stirring often. I cook them and remove them from the pan and serve.20120518-145859.jpg
