Vegetable & Prawns Stir Fried

Vegetable & Prawns Stir-fried

As a working mom, planning a quick and easy home-cooked meal for dinner everyday is indeed a dedicated assignment to complete. I would say, it didn't come easy! I need to plan ahead or bookmark some quick and simple yet wholesome meals for the last minute rescue in the kitchen... *LOL* It's no joke when you need to cook up a dinner spontaneously, especially after a tiring working day. (Hands up, Mommy)!

Hence, I need to inspect my fridge and do a stock check very often to come up with simple and quick dishes for the emergency call. *LOL*. This is one of those quick and easy dishes in the list. I have some prawns, left over capsicum & some ready-made fish paste wrapped with vegetables in hand. Thus, stir-frying all of them with some seasonings or sauce provide you a practical home-cooked meal. Isn't it good? It is perfect for busy working mum like me during peak-hours! *wink*

Vegetable & Prawns Stir-fried

10pcs Fish paste wrapped with vegetables (use for steamboat)
10 pcs Large prawns, removed shells and veins
1/4 Green capsicum, sliced thinly
2 cloves Garlic, minced
Sunflower oil

1 tsp Tapioca/Corn flour
3 tbsps Water
Dash of Salt & pepper
1 tbsp Rice wine (Shao Xing wine)

1. Marinade prawns with some sugar & pepper. Set aside.
2. Heat up oil, saute garlic until fragrant.
3. Add in capsicum, stir fry for a minute.
4. Add in prawns, stir fry for another minute or until prawns turn pink.
5. Add the fish paste. Stir fry for 2 mins. Add seasoning and mix well.
6. Leave for a minute and dish up. Serve while hot.
