Sticky Chilli Garlic Prawns

Sticky Chilli Garlic Prawns




The Lowdown:

These prawns pack a punch of flavour — spicy and savoury yet they won't take up much of your time to prepare and cook. If you are a seafood lover, this is an absolutely must-try dish! The sweetness of the prawns is brought out by the shao xing sauce that's stir-fried till perfection. It goes so well on rice by the way.
