Simple Chinese Broccoli w/ Oyster and Garlic Ginger Prawns

Here is a Jamie Oliver-esque recipe… simple, delicious, easy and FAAAAST!

When purchasing prawns, I prefer to buy local (Australian) produce. Most fish mongers are happy to sell them to you frozen (not thawed) prawn meat, which you can keep in the freezer at home, ready to go. Just make sure you wrap them in airtight bags…no one likes prawn scented ice cream!!

Serves 2

What you will need:

8-12 raw peeled prawns

3-4 tbs sesame oil

1 tbs vegetable oil

1 tbs sesame seeds

3 cloves garlic, crushed

5cm sliced ginger

2 bunches of Chinese broccoli cut into 10cm pieces (approx 6-8 stems per bunch)

1/2 cup oyster sauce

1 cup of rice

How to prepare:

Set the rice to cook as per instructions on the packet.

Combine the peeled prawns with 2 cloves of garlic, all of the ginger, sesames and the sesame oil into a bowl and set aside.

In a wok or flat non stick pan. Heat 3 tbs sesame oil and vegetable oil on medium heat.

When hot, add the remaining clove of garlic and the Chinese broccoli. Set the heat to low/medium. Add the oyster sauce, mix and place a lid over the pan to fry/steam the broccoli. Stir the broccoli every couple of minutes and cook until just tender.

Remove from the pan and leave in a warm spot.

Using the same pan, add a drizzle of sesame oil, set the heat on high and cook the prawns.



While the prawns are sizzling, drain and spoon the rice onto a plate. Top with the broccoli.

Once the prawns have turned pink and the sesames/garlic/ginger turns crispy remove from the heat and spoon over the broccoli. Be sure to spoon out the crunchy bits too. Drizzle any remaining oyster sauce from from the broccoli over the dish.
