Murdoch Recipe Article Lead - narrow
  • 24 large prawns (shrimp), peeled and deveined
  • 150 ml (5 fl oz) Chinese rice wine
  • 2 red chillies, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger

Method

1. Put the prawns in a non-metallic bowl. Mix the rice wine with the chillies, ginger and sugar and pour over the prawns. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.

2. Heat a wok until very hot. Take 60 ml (1/4 cup) of the rice wine out of the marinade and add to the wok.

Let the flame burn and die down before adding the rest of the marinade and prawns. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the prawns turn pink. Serve immediately.
